Wow, so I have in my possession the first book I illustrated! It is very surreal getting the copies in the mail and seeing the real thing physical after all the work that went into it. There is even a little bio about me in the jacket which was really unexpected. This whole thing took place starting a few months after I graduated....It is for Tricycle Press which is an imprint of Random House. This was such a neat experience! I must admit it was very hard to juggle this and a full time job, but that is all part of the illustration journey, right? The end result is so worth it! The story, (about a creepy tilted house) was very much up my alley. I could not have asked for better subject matter. It was a flashback to an old haunted house I lived in as a kid. Anyway, the book available for pre-order on the Random House site. Then the book will be sold in bookstores all around! Hopefully I will get the interior illustrations posted to my website soon-there were 16 total in B+W. I am too excited! Thank you so much to Abi, Betsy and Tom for the experience!
