On my desk Monday

School visits are over and I can finally start concentrating on my next book....a picture book!

Yes, it's been a long time! I've been pretty consumed with novels and early readers--the last picture book I did was over six years ago. So long ago that most people have forgotten that I am even an illustrator, most people now know me as author.

Which is probably why I've actually been sitting on this project for a while. Not because I don't love it...in fact, quite the opposite. It's because I love it so much I've been afraid to start. Am I still an illustrator? I have spent so much time focusing on improving my writing...has my art skill stagnated? Or worse, has it decayed and disappeared?

Well, I guess there is only one way to find out! Wish me luck!

Oh goody! Good Luck to my favorite illustrator (who also happens to be one of my favorite authors)!

Enjoy the return journey to illustration. It is all there, just waiting for you to awaken it once more.
