In case some of you don't follow my regular blogs: I have two new book contracts, illustrating a picture book series for Random House Children's Books! Details here
. This means that between now and 2016, I'll be working on SIX new picture books projects -- one of which I am writing as well as illustrating (for Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers). I so wish I could take some of the goodstuff now and spread it out a bit over the many years I was getting nothing but rejections, or at least send an earlier message to my earlier self and say, "Don't lose hope."
And I remain immensely grateful to my friend Beckett Gladney artbeco
for convincing me to enter that first portfolio showcase back in 2010
