Hello everyone! I finally wrapped up all the illustrations for my upcoming picture book Ada Byron Lovelace and the Thinking Machine written by Laurie Wallmark and published by Creston Books. The book will be released on Ada Lovelace Day (October 13, 2015), which is an international celebration of girls and women in science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM). Ada Bryon Lovelace was an English mathematician who lived in the 1800s and is considered to be the world's first computer programmer. This year also marks the 200th anniversary of Ada's birth year. I'm very excited to bring attention to such an amazing historical figure.
While I was diligently trying to finish my deadline for the Ada book, I also attended many book events for In a Village by the Sea. Yes, I had a busy summer so far...and it's about to get busier. Here are some photo highlights from the events.
