A Year of Kids' Books #11

It's been a rough couple of weeks here finding time to get all the things done that need to be done. I'm sure any parent can relate to times like this. I'll say more about my Grandma in a separate post, but she passed away last week, and even though I didn't spend as much time around her as my cousins did, she still showed me all the love in the world whenever I was lucky enough to be near her.

Igor the Elephant is a Big Ole Grump (the working title for this current book project) is basically done...still. But I have given myself a little more time to look at the illustrations and the story before I send it out on April second. I'll wait until the second to prevent any presses from deleting the submission under the assumption that it is obviously an April fools' joke. (And that joke is the kind that I think Granny would've liked because it hurts no one.)

 This camel looking over its shoulder at a control tower is the beginning of some illustration work that I plan to do for my collection  waiting for the Enemy . I'm not sure about the style yet, but this is a starting point.

Happy Monday.
