I am excited. I am getting started  illustrating a new children’s book. It is fun process for me as I sketch and come up with characters in their settings. I tend to draw my sketches on any available surface. It is not the greatest habit.  I have tried to limit myself to paper in more recent years. I should be opening a sketch book.

I don’t have sketches of the new book ready to share, but here is an an illustration for Saturday, a delightful children’s book about a mouse written by Jessa Rose Sexton that I illustrated several years ago. It was published in hardback and then again in paperback. I love children’s books in hardback, but in this case, I think the most charming version was the paperback. It is still available on
