It's still Christmas over here...

I refuse to take down my fake mini tree until I finish this book! Nearing the end of final art for a project with Simon and Schuster, now titled CHRISTMAS IS HERE. In three weeks all the art will be complete, and on its way to China to print in time for publication this Fall. Fastest turnaround on a book I've ever experienced. I'm used to waiting a good 1.5 years to see a final product, so it's pretty fun that I'll be holding a bound copy of this sucker in just a few short months (well, maybe 6 or 8, but still FAST). I'll share more about the project later on this year, as publication time approaches...For now, back to the drawing board. Got a deadline to make!

Happy 2010!

A new year, a new studio! Well, very soon! And while the new studio is being renovated, I am temporarily set up in my living room, in the back of the apartment. I'm loving it because my desk faces the windows, where I can watch the neighborhood cats and squirrels walk wires and fences between backyards all day long. And each evening as the sun says goodbye, the buildings become one beautiful silhouette against the darkening sky. This evening I was inspired to make a little ink and watercolor because it was just that pretty :)

Wishing you all a very happy 2010, filled with much beauty & wonder~
