On my way to the printer


In getting the artwork ready for the new Corduroy board book, my printers in upstate NY are essential! I'm heading there now. On my travels, I peek in to see bunnies and ballerinas! Quite a different view from that of the industrial streets of lower Manhattan where my NYC printer is located. Lindsey finesses the scans of the inked boards I bring her and she sends them along to my second printer. It really does take a village to make it all happen!

Featured Book: "Corduroy's Neighborhood"

Three more area shops carry Wheeler artwork

Local fans of my artwork and the books I have illustrated now have three more places to find books, cards, Wheeler Illustration prints and even original art. Visit O'Brien Pharmacy and Play Hollow in Ballston Spa, as well as Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council (LARAC) in Glens Falls. All of my items they carry make great gifts!


Natalia Martinez, Play Hollow's owner, shows off books graced with Wheeler Illustration.
