Kate O’Sullivan at Houghton Mifflin Books for Children has asked me to work on a book! The text is simple and beautiful and lends itself to images of Fall wonder.

Working with text is something I have been playing with… whether to integrate it using paper, either in the foreground or background or to lay it over in Photoshop. Let me know what you think… here are some samples.

My last full studio day… pot of tea, CBC and brand new supplies. Giddy.
