I Can’t Help Myself!

This book doesn’t come out until May, but I couldn’t wait to give a preview.  I had the honor and pleasure of illustrating  the Australian author Mem Fox’s new book. I just got my first copy in the mail today and I am so excited. I love it! It’s crazy! It’s like candy!

For me the process of authoring is full of  pressure, responsibility and a little angst ridden. My fun starts when I can go to final on the art.  That’s a place where I am really comfortable and where I belong,  so illustrating another author’s children’s book (which is something I said I would never do!) was just just fun, fun, fun. I hope you like it too!

    Very exciting for me too, when one of my favourite illustrators and one of my favourite authors collaborate over a book! Hope I can review it.
