Gardening is a deeply centering act for me. When spring comes around I am always eager to get outside and begin digging in the dirt.

So when Patricia Long showed me her story about sharing called “Mr. Gibsons Garden”, I was in! I’ve worked with Pat before when I illustrated her story “The Stitches Fairy”, so I knew this would be a well-told tale I could share with my kids and also with people who enjoy my art as well. 

It begins with Mr. Gibson, who is an excellent gardener, but isn’t that great at sharing. Will he learn how to be a better neighbor? 

Here are some pictures from the very long but satisfying process of illustrating a children’s book –
