A book of Lullabies...

I've been currently working on a wonderful project, a book of Lullabies. I've always enjoyed portraying the wonder of childhood in my work and how the imagination thrives in the heartspace of a child. 
This book is no exception. The author is a very special person with a gift of capturing childhood innocence and wonder. It's a real honor for me to be working with her. It's truly a journey. Anyway, below you will find that I've posted a couple of illustrations from this book of wonder.

I've also been working on another project, one that I'm really excited about. I'll share a little bit about it on my next post.

I like your art. I found you on deviantart and then I arrived here; I have a blog on blogspot so I decided to follow you. Glad to know you! :-)

Extrordinairy! Just the most joyous journey from Heaven to Earth!! Of course, you know my love for your Lullaby Tree...I attended the SCBWI conference in NYC this past weekend. Thank you for encouraging me to get involved with them and their publications. I thought of you a lot and wished I could have paid your way. You would have won the art award!! Yesterday, I submitted a query letter for my tree story and you and your works are mentioned in the letter...exciting!
