New Christmas Children's Book
Teggie Wants a Hippo for Christmas

All of the rough sketches are now complete for the new Christmas story. The idea for the book is based on a joke in our family about our bunny, Tegan, wishing for a hippo for Christmas. I'm really proud of the illustrations by Jay Diloy and I'm sure you will all fall in love with them. Work on the colored versions is now commencing, but I wanted to share a few of the rough sketches with you today!

We do now have one colored page for the book. I think it's beautiful, although I will say I am not happy about the finishing time for the illustrations in this book.
