When I was little, I had more books than friends. Heck, I had twenty times more books than friends. Thanks to package that arrived this weekend, I can now I can say that I have two more books to add to my bookshelf. And I illustrated the covers!!!
The author of these amazing children’s books is a local, San Jose writer. He saw my art at a fair and asked if I would be interested in illustrating the books he was writing for his children. I couldn’t say, “YES!” fast enough. Who wouldn’t want to work with an author to create a masterpiece of fiction and ink?
Since I still have one year left in my cat-waiting-period, I couldn’t help but share this picture of Roy’s cat guarding the books. I feel good knowing that my books are being protected from enemies by this guy. Don’t you wish you had a cat book guardian?
