It is hard to believe that it's been more than a month since I posted.
That is because I have been buried with a book project that is coming to a close.
This book has been a labor of love. I wrote AND illustrated it. It started in 1983, as a small poem. Then it went to bed and into hibernation for 17 years while I a) did tons of editorial art, and b) raised three wild boys.
Finally after several rewrites and near misses it found a home with an editor that I adore and have worked with on several books.
And I have spend that last nine months on it from morning until night.
The art is 90% done and shipped. I miss it.
BUT---I sure am glad this pregnancy is OVER!!!!!!
I need some serious junkin' time....
In the meantime, here is some art fromthe latest chpater book I have illustrated for Viking (written by David Adler)
