Melvin and the boy, on their way!

Yesterday I packaged up and delivered most of the art for my first written book, Melvin and the boy! Henry Holt will be publishing it in the very distant Spring 2011, and I am both excited and terrified! I think the excitement outweighs the terror though :)

Congratulations, Lauren! This is going to make an absolutely beautiful book. 2011 is too long of a wait.
