Currently I am revising sketches for my new book with Pelican Publishing. Hopefully, these revisions will be finished by the end of this week and I can begin to work on the final illustrations. When this book is published I plan to include some type of storytelling when I talk to children about my art process. I love to see the sparkle in the eyes of children when I talk with them.
On a different note, I was nicely welcomed at the Poplarville, MS school system last week. I had been invited to speak to all the faculty and staff of the Poplarville School Disctrict. My topic was Motivation, Inspiration, and the Importance of Reading. It is good that this system invited an artist/children's book illustrator to address the school.
