new book news

I am delighted to announce that I will be illustrating a new book for editor Janine O'Malley at Farrar, Strous and Giroux. The author of this wonderful story (which I fell in love with before I had even read more than 3 or 4 lines into it,) is the great Laurie Thompson. The illustration above is just a very early preliminary sketch, it should be interesting to see how it looks six or eight months from now!

OH! I can't wait! Congrats to both you and Laurie :)

This is just the tip of the iceberg, folks. Paul's preliminary art for this book is absolutely, unbelievably adorable! I am a lucky, lucky author, indeed. So excited and honored to see the brilliant Paul Schmid bring this one to life! SQUEE!!
