I was invited to take part in the Monster Show at Domy Books in Austin and Houston this year. I broke out the Prismacolors and let the medium do the talking. I channeled a "kid on the carpet" vibe for the set, of which this drawing is one.
This is the cover to the book I am illustrating for Dial Books for Young Readers (part of Penguin Group). I submitted final illustrations. I'm getting feedback from the editorial staff and we'll tinker them. We're close to finished though!
I popped in at Amazon.com to discover the book is being released on my birthday—May 12, 2011.
