I'm gonna make this my annual Thanksgiving image. It is the first color illustration assignment I ever got--a piece on Turkey farms for Boston Magazine back in the 80s. Again, thanks to the late Stan McCray, the art director of the magazine when I was doing art for them and when I was just starting out as an illustrator. Stan was sweet, handsome and fun to work with. Because of Stan I have had the pleasure of being able to be a professional illustrator for more than 25 years.
And that's a good segue to the purpose of blogging today. To remind myself and everyone else to be thankful for all the good that we have.
Good health for my husband and children. Family and friends. Being able to spend time writing and making art.
To the powers that be: thank you, thank you, thank you.
