Euphoria. Completed art ready to ship to New York.
The Book Boat for Holiday House Publishers had many ports of call. At the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, where I met the editor Grace Maccarone for the very first time.

Los Angeles and by pure syncronicity, I met the author, Cynthia Cotten (shhh- don’t tell the publisher).

Upstate New York and a visit to the Erie Canal Museum in Syracuse for research and finally Fremantle, Australia to create the art.

So what’s in the box…here’s a sneak preview of the art. Click on image to see full spread. To see more, you may have to buy the book next spring. 😉
