I have the pleasure of working for a second time with Diane Cantrell, author of Mom’s Choice Award winning picture book, Good-bye Baby Max. The title of our latest picture book is yet to be set, but I can tell you the story is about three pups who don’t quite grasp the concept of the Tooth Fairy and try in earnest to find their owner’s first lost tooth. I’ve just finished up the sketches… here are a handful to have a sneak peek at! The finals will be in watercolour & pencil on Arches paper. I transferred the sketches with an Artograph a couple nights ago, so once I’ve taped the paper down to masonite boards I will start painting, yippee!

Heather,
Another great set of illustrations! You and Diane make quite team. Diane is thinking seriously of going to New York for a book expo. The Mom’s Choice Awards have been sharing information about the event. It shoud be wonderful exposure for both of you.
Hugs for Hera!
Rich
