The first two books of the Little Wings series that I'm illustrating for Random House just came out. Check them out! I'm illustrating them digitally - I even drew the sketches in Photoshop.

Long time, NO POST!
I apologize for that, but I have been VERY busy with lots of crazy things including
the current project I am working on.
After over a year, the first product is on store shelves and I can reveal information!!
Meet the Learnalots!
They are 8 characters that will help making learning special subjects fun through multiple products.
(L to R: Sofie, Leo, Kit, Scout, Piper, Zak, Flora and Bo)
The first product on shelves NOW (Sam's and Costco across US)
are giant floor pad activity books.
There is one for Preschool, Kindergarten, 1st Grade and a Ready for Reading Book.
If you go into a Sam's of Costco, go look in the book section and give me a shout.
You can find me on Facebook - Nikki Boetger Illustrations

I am keeping a giant map of LAL Sightings. So far, friends have found in Washington, Utah, Montana, Kentucky, Michigan, North Carolina and Ohio!!! I would love to add YOUR town/state to my map!!!

Gunther the Underwater Elephant is at the printers. I should have my copies about the same time the book is released. That would be around September 15. It is especially exciting for me because although I have illustrated over 20 books, this is the first one I have written and illustrated. Once the reviews are out I will know if little Gunther will sink or swim *:) There will be giveaways once the book is released.
