Highlights Hidden Pictures #1

I don't think my family ever had a subscription to Highlights Magazine when I was a kid, but I definitely remember reading it at every single one of my dentist appointments growing up.  My favorite feature was always the "Hidden Picture" challenge, where you'd look through a large illustration to find lots of little drawings hidden inside.

Well, imagine my delight, earlier this year, when Highlights got in touch and asked me to draw some hidden pictures for them!  I did five of these before things got hectic with my big book project, and the first one arrived in the mail the other day.  It's always a thrill to see my work in print!

This Highlights: Eagle-Eye Hidden Pictures book is cover-to-cover hidden pictures, so if that is your kind of thing, than this book is for you!  My drawing was for the "Gaby's Journal" feature, in which a little girl named Gaby travels around the USA with her family, seeing cool landmarks and roadside attractions.

If you see one of these magazines, pick it up!  The next string of issues should have some illustrations by yours truly, and hopefully I'll do some more of these in the future!
