Thinking of You
#tbt Throw Back Thursday!
Here's a book I illustrated for Running Press. A fun pop-up book that was full of all sorts of design challenges. I loved working on it.
Another memory connected to the book: We lived in a small town for a short time in between our time in Pittsburgh and Cedar Falls. When we moved (yet again!) sweet friends gave a small going-away party and I brought these books as good-bye gifts. I guess I'd never spoken about my work (my studio has always been in my home so people assumed I didn't work outside the home) and I'll never forget the look on their faces as they opened the book. "This has YOUR name on it?!" "YOU illustrated this book?!" "YOU"RE AN ILLUSTRATOR?!" "A REAL illustrator?!" "WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL US?!!"
