New Year, New Stories, New Art

Happy 2013 everybody!

I kind of expected to be living in a post apocalyptic wasteland by now, wearing my cobbled together armor and shooting down from the roof of my Battle Bus at the hordes of monsters spawned from the laboratories of science-gone-wrong. So it's actually pretty great that instead I'm eating christmas cookies and getting ready to start a work new picture book.

Here's a little peek at my desktop from the closing days of old 2012...

This is the dust jacket cover art from The Worm Whisperer by Betty Hicks (and illustrated by me). I think the cover design came out looking pretty great.


I sent out a respectable batch of books this Christmas. This was one of my "more favorater" title page sketches.

The cover of the new book looks great! And I look forward to hearing more about the picture book...
I hope the Hatke family has a happy, holy, and healthy new year with lots of blessings and good surprises!

Thanks Faith, and I wish the same to you!

I'm hoping to post more about the picture book as I work on it. Yesterday I bought a big batch of Arches watercolor paper...
