Obsession

Introducing my new obsession....Manfred the Giraffe!

He is the star in my upcoming children's book.  I am so excited to be writing and illustrating a book.  Now my only hope is that someone will want to publish me....we will come to that road in time :)

Don't want to give away too much about the book but I sure am excited to have such a great start on it.  I am also excited to attend the SCBWI conference!!!

I just read two really great children's books.....Leonardo the Terrible Monster and I Ain't Gonna Paint No More.  I really enjoyed these a bunch!!!!!!
Hope you are all doing well.

Love the expression on his face! I also love I Ain't Gonna Paint No More and use it in storytime at the library at least once a year (if not more)
