Chirp’s March Issue

I used to read Owl magazine religiously as a child, so you can imagine how happy I was to do some work for their primary years publication Chirp. Along with the cover, I also created a busy Laos textile market scene for their Take A Trip page.

My friend and fellow illustrator, Charlotte Oh, created a cute plasticine flip book featured in the same issue. You can see more of her work here.

    Ashley, if you get the chance you should publish a coffee table book of your art!

    I love your illustration on both on the cover and within.
    Good Job Ashley!

Grade fours, standing at the edge of their paper collaged pond. There’s a swamp monster sporting sunglasses somewhere in there. 😎 October’s been flying by and so has my IBBY residency at the @torontolibrary . There are still two workshops left, so feel free to join me!

Together, we cut and pasted and created these technicolor collaged landscapes.✂️🌈☀️ I was searching through boxes of old stuff in preparation for last week’s “Unlocking Your Artistic Voice” workshop and came across this page I had doodled back in high school. Going to keep it on my bulletin board from now on. #anaisnin #anaisninquote Getting his greens. 🌱#catgrass My #motherofmillions is dropping her “babies” off left and right. Does anyone want some?
