Well, I returned late Thursday night from an impromptu vacation/adventure. I will tell you all about it in a future post. But for now I am sort of enjoying my break. I took a break from drawing and from blogging. I missed it at first, but now I have to admit it is sort of a nice little break. I am really trying to learn to take time for myself.
Meanwhile, more GOOD NEWS to share: I was awarded a new picture book to illustrate for Spring 2009. The publisher is Soundprints, and the book is for The Smithsonian Institution! I am very excited. This book will be a huge challenge for certain, but I am really looking forward to it. I need to begin researching the characters.....who are "creepy crawlies". Okay, that was a hint. I cannot say anything more!
Also, PLEASE NOTE: If you sent me an email between 7/13 and 7/17, there is a good chance I did NOT receive it. My web mail program is HIDEOUS and UNRELIABLE and DETESTABLE. A couple of people have told me they emailed me. I did not receive their emails. It is the best I can do when I am out of town. So...I am not ignoring you.
It's good to be back. I think I'll go read....
