Book Business Tuesday: Cootie Catchers!

It's been awhile since I did a Book Business topic and this is a good one: Fold Me Up is here! I was so excited to be one of ten guest illustrators invited to do a special design for this collection of 100 paper fortune-tellers, aka cootie catchers. I was even more happy to learn that my design made the cover (the little mermaid lady above).

I received an advance copy a couple of weeks ago and it releases today. Author Michelle Taute has a great sense of humor and has created such a fun collection. Here's a peak of my page:

My topic was imaginary creatures with a mermaid, kraken, minotaur and unicorn. 

I continued the theme on the back with a phoenix. Available here and now! 


  1. Thanks so much for sharing this Nicole! Your imaginary animals are such a wonderful addition to the book.

    1. Thank YOU so much, Michelle — my long overdue thank you note to you says how happy I am with the whole book. It's amazingly fun and gorgeous!!
