race


Here is the first color painting I've done for WHERE THE MOUNTAIN MEETS THE MOON. Upon looking at the manuscript, we decided it would be ideal if there were 10 color illustrations...but I need to do them by the end of the month. Yikes! Wish me luck!

I want them all to have this level of detail, though I do think I overworked this one a little. If I have time, I'm going to go back and decrease the contrast of the gate, take the yellow/orange light away from it, make it a bit more monochromatic so it isn't so fussy looking.

I agree this is amazing. You will be visiting my son's school in September, and we are looking forward to meeting you.

Best, Marguerite and Ethan Goswick

Dear Grace Lin,
My favorite color is red. I like your book "red is a dragon".
