Boy, do I identify with this little kitten! The last few months have kept me running (and - apologies - not blogging). This is the cover for the book I just finished illustrating for Random House: Sleeping Bootsie by Maribeth Boelts. What a great experience! I learned so much from this first book. Art Director Jan Gerardi was wonderful. And amidst castles and kittens, I finished my MFA (worth every minute of the many months it took). So now its on to new adventures: a picturebook for Eerdman's, teaching, writing, and making all the pictures roaming around in my head.
