A review! A review!

Linda Black wrote a delightful children's book titled The Adventures of Boots: The Giant Snowball and I was asked to the the illustrations as one of the Willow Moon Publishing artists. And now it has received a glowing review.

I must say it was fun work. Which doesn't mean it was shake-a-finger-at-it-easy, that wouldn't have been interesting.

No, it really was fun. Before I started work on Linda's book, I hadn't done much in the way of toony images. I tended to lean toward the serious, realistic, and sometimes grave.

But with Boots, it had to be playful and childlike. And so I discovered and learned a lot of new skills and new ways of looking at things while I worked on Boots.

Thank you, Linda, for the opp

Now I have a whole new world to play in.
