gratitude

Catching up this blog, as promised. I'm back to work as a full time illustrator for the first time since last November and it feels great. Just completed: the dummy for the book that was put on hold, the Tibetan Chiru, by Jacqueline Briggs Martin for Houghton Mifflin, who have all been so good to me through the hand trauma.












Also another card for Peaceable Kingdom Press. This is the first painting with my new hand. Not just a fairy or a unicorn, but a fairy AND a unicorn in one card! I really like this one, and this company is unbelievably wonderful.
