The Goblin and the Queen

I've had my head down at my desk lately working on some of the final edits to Little Robot and trying to get a solid start on my next book (which I don't have much to say about yet). So I haven't had a lot of extra art to share, beyond the watercolor above, which I hope you like. Last month I thought a lot about wizards. This month I seem to be thinking a lot about goblins...

Later this week I will be traveling to Miami for the Miami Book Fair International. This will be my second time attending the Miami book fair, and I'm really looking forward to it. It's a very fun event, and this time I'll be catching up with Dave Roman and Kazu Kibuishi. Yay!

One other bit of news: I know I've been posting a lot about the Goodreads Choice Awards. Well, Julia's House has made the final rounds in the picture book category. If you want to take a look at this last round just click this link right here.

Okay! Next time: pictures from Miami (I hope).

Really lovely drawing. I'd like to read the story that goes with it someday.

The picture reminds me of The Labyrinth. Y'know, the movie with David Bowie???

Lovely - what dear friends. I have a feeling they had a long adventure to get to this friendship. Will you be sharing it sometime?
