Last year’s resolution: Draw & document images for my daughter Jade.
I’m really proud I accomplished last year’s vision.
I wasn’t sure if my project would ever get off the ground.
I had a backlog of images & it took a long to time to photograph everything.
I’m glad WordPress has the technology and helped me reach my goal.
It’s been such a joy creating this project and I hope to continue for some time.
Thanks to my wife, all my friends, and my extended family for their love & support.
Happy New Year to everyone.
May you all have peace, love and prosperity in 2013.
Jade painted this at StrongStart before the holidays.
I’m the red skater and Jade is in gold.
I think we’re with the Canadian Olympic team (haha).
Jade really enjoyed skating with me earlier this month.
We’ll have to go again soon.
Jade gives me a personal presentation of her latest painting.
It’s fun listening … But even better watching her paint.
Love, Love Love ~
Steppy is a little hamster and she’s my daughter’s new favourite toy.
I’m always hearing “Draw Steppy.” Jade likes to add new features (mittens, shoes, etc).
Cuteness Overload ~
Wherever Jade goes, her friend Steppy is always there. They’re great buddies.
You Can’t Hide It ~
I played Ricky Lee Jones’ song “Chuck E’s In Love” and we switched the lyrics to “Steppy’s In Love.” Jade thought it was hilarious.
In the drawing (above), Joey the hamster is chasing Steppy.
(Joey likes when Steppy plays hard to get).
That’s The Way She Rolls ~
Steppy is always creative, street savvy and super sassy.
My wife and Jade created the look for “Toilet Roll Steppy.”
Still Rolling ~
Jade painted the pink base layers (above) and my wife fine-tuned the details.
The Glamour ~
Steppy is very comfortable in glitter. At our home, Steppy is truly a star.
No Small Step ~
Steppy is always sporty and active. Recently she learned to ride a bike.
A Happy Steppy ~
We also created a “Big Block Singsong Steppy” and we substituted the lyrics “Happy” to “Steppy.” It’s now Steppy’s unofficial theme song.

Steppy Does It All ~
Steppy is extremely talented and can even stand on her head!!!
Steppy and Jade … Best Friends Forever!!!
Always Dazzling ~
A rare interview where Steppy dazzles the camera!
As you can see, Steppy is the real deal!
Jade was happy to see her painting on the wall in her StrongStart classroom. StrongStart is a FREE early ed program in BC, Canada.
