Cover design

I just found a blog all about cover design – what a great thing!

We went through about seven different designs for the cover of Uncle Bobby’s Wedding, and I even did finished art for one that we tossed a couple months later. I like the one we ended up with a lot. 🙂

There has been little news to share lately; I’ve been finishing up a new manuscript and dummy, and trying to get some illustration work. I’m also obsessed with feathers at the moment, picking them up wherever I see them and learning how to draw them. Check out a couple of new pieces on my illustration page.

I was just hired to illustrate a very interesting non-fiction children’s book, though, and I’ll be able to share news about it soon. I’m excited about it!
