Wow, an entire month without Fox posts! Definitely not my usual style, but sometimes life throws curve balls and you have to take a break. I have to say, I've never caught flu bugs and colds so many times in one year before. From what I've read though, I'm not surprised, as I'm in a care-taker's roll and that is a constant strain on the immune system. They're not kidding! I'm going to try to get my exercise routine going again so I can give the ol' immune system a boost.
I'll also be catching up on emails this week so if you haven't heard from me I have not forgotten you!
Let's see, currently I'm working on three books. One is Baby Moose Visits for Dutton - I'm waiting on responses for the thumbnail sketches (that I posted here earlier), Raj The Bookstore Tiger for Charlesbridge is in sketching phase part 2 and Wow It's a Cow for Scholastic (my first lift-the-flap book, hooray!) is in sketching phase as well.
On the writing side of things, I've submitted summaries for eleven of my manuscripts to an editor that as shown interest in me as an author/illustrator! These are stories I wrote for fun over the last eight years or so. I guess they are finally seeing the light of day! Haha.
Thanks so much to my very talented friend Ginger for pointing out the listing of Little Green Pea in Publishers Weekly! I would never have known otherwise, so I very much appreciate that! Green Pea is being release April 4th for anyone interested. From what I've heard, I will be receiving copies of the books in late March--my very first trade book, so I can't wait!!
Lots going on both professionally and personally, but I think I'm back in the groove of posting on regular basis.
Till next time! Keep drawing, and practicing (that's what I'm gonna do) ---I'll leave you with a character sketch of the star cow in Wow It's a Cow!
