New Highlights Cover Art

The December Highlights for Children is out!
The original art, titled Season's Greetings, is posted here for you to enjoy.
It's great fun for me to feature real pets in my Illustrations. Bailey Thomas, a happy, tail-wagging West Highland White Terrier is one of two real pet friends drawn in this piece.
The cat in the window, (who gets covered up with the banner) was inspired by the real life Mac Vargo.
Thanks for stopping by to see my new December Highlights cover!

November is Picture Book Month, encouraging everyone to celebrate literacy with picture
books. (Click on the logo) Every day this month, there will be a new post from a picture book champion explaining why he/she thinks picture books are important.
