I've had permission from the publisher to post some of the final art from the picture book that I recently illustrated (Bye, Bye, Butterflies!) for over a week but just couldn't find the time to get it done. My world has been filled with chaos lately. In addition to some freelance work, over the past month my husband and I have been dealing with several issues with our apartment (including but not limited to an attempted break in) and we've also been searching for a home to buy - which is pretty time consuming and stressful in itself. The apartment issues seem to be getting resolved and the new home search may have come to an end so I feel like I can finally take a moment to get caught up.
I just added an icon of the book cover to the right and as far as I'm aware the book is still on track to be released in June. I can't wait!
So, without any further delay, here is the opening illustration for the book:

Stay tuned, as I'll be sharing more images in the coming days :)
