New "Mildred" cover
I'm working on a new "Mildred" book dummy to send out to publishers this
Fall. Upon finishing my collage class this summer, I've decided to work with
cut paper, something I've always wanted to do but feared all the comparisons
to Eric Carle,Leo Lionni etc. But, I've decided to forge ahead and am happy I did.
I feel I get the spontaneity of paint and precision and boldness from collage,
something I feel is necessary for me to make successful illustrations.
I guess we'll find out when I send them out in September.
