A surprise FOOT of new snow yesterday afternoon and a semi-surprise package in the mail! SEA STAR WISHES (Sasquatch Books) doesn't come out until April 2, but my requisite illustrator copies arrived in a whirl of white. Written by celebrated singer, songwriter, and poet, Eric Ode, this book was incredibly great to illustrate. The designers at Sasquatch did a fantastic job with the scanning/layout, and I am seriously pleased to report that the colors haven't lost an ounce of punch. Hooray!
Not to mention the double whammy on the Eric & Erik thing... It's going to be fun to show this off in the spring -- whenever that eventually arrives :)
