It's time to say goodbye to this old blog. I originally started this site in 2008 so that I could participate in the weekly Illustration Friday prompts... I didn't have a website at the time and Blogger's price (free) was well within my budget. Along the way I've met many artists who have since become friends and colleagues. The comments left on posts provided a real boost and I'm so grateful to everyone who's taken the time to leave an encouraging word.
I'm going to leave this blog up for awhile, but won't be adding any new posts. From here on out, I'll be posting at my website at EricBarclay.com.

My new picture book, HIDING PHIL, is out!
It's the story of three siblings who come upon an elephant named Phil and decide to bring him home. "Our parents will love Phil!" they cry out. Until it dawns on them: "Uh, oh . . ." No they won't!
So what do they do? Try to hide him, of course! But hiding an elephant proves to be much more difficult than they ever imagined.
Where To Buy:

I CAN SEE JUST FINE is now in stores.
Despite Paige’s repeated refrain of “I can see just fine,” the illustrations portray a different story. Paige braves an enthralling eye checkup, enjoys a playful frame selection, and, most importantly, ends up seeing clearly in the end.
"It’s a useful, non-didactic story for kids in Paige’s situation—and utterly fun, too.”
I'm giving away a signed book and a signed poster. Just leave a comment (can be a simple "count me in") on this blog by 10p ET on Monday, August 12, 2013. I'll draw two names: the first name drawn gets a book, the second name gets the poster.
Comments will be closed at 10pm Eastern Time on August 12, 2013. Winners will be announced Wednesday, August 14, 2013.
Where to Buy
Available in Hardback, Kindle, and Nook formats.

A sneak peek of my upcoming book, I CAN SEE JUST FINE, due out this August and published by Abrams Appleseed. It's the story of a little girl who is absolutely certain she does not need eyeglasses... in spite of what everyone else thinks.
