Illustrating, authoring, painting, curating, and planning for more of all of it.

What Will Grow by Jennifer Ward, illustrated by Susie Ghahremani

This week has been absolutely bananas. I received proofs of both of my picture books, What Will Grow? (publishing Feb 2017) and Stack the Cats!, my first picture book as author AND illustrator (publishing May 2017). To see years of my work bound and in my hands has been a transcendent experience. It’s crazy how small steps every day can add up like this. Save the dates – these books are out next year, not this one!

My artwork from Leanna Lin’s Wonderland 6 year anniversary show is online or in person in Los Angeles (always the better way to see it, if you can) until August 28th:

And I’ll have paintings in FLORA at Land in Portland, OR next month, opening August 26th, at this show I’m proud to say I curated myself. (RSVP on Facebook here) — It features an all-female, all-analog lineup, something I’m not sure I’ve ever seen before in combination in an exhibition. And it’s at one of the best galleries ever!

I’ve already begun work on my next picture book, several exciting illustrations, other art shows (including two solo shows slated for 2017), and enjoying making and mailing this series of pins, so all in all, I’m happy, busy, and ready for more.

I have 38 paintings and new works in the show alongside six great artists. The curation of the show brought together work that is diverse but complementary. Thanks to Eric Nakamura for inviting me to be part of such a special group.
