Well, I have some sad news. Red Heart Books who is the publisher of Detective Punybutmighty, is closing. They let us know last week. I have been letting the news sink in. So that means the two books I was working on will not happen. At least not from Red Heart Books.
I was working on a wonderful story by my cousin Robin Morris called Tuti's Hair Cut. I was so looking forward to that one. It was going to be done in cut paper. Also another Detective book was in the works. Sending out a big thank you to Red Heart Books for giving me such a wonderful opportunity.
Oh well. Onward I go.
Getting ready for a SCBWI Illustration Retreat at Silver Creek Falls in Oregon, coming up in October. It should be lots of fun. I always get a little nervous before going to something like this. But, I guess it's good to push yourself.
Here are a couple new cut paper illustrations. Not sure if they will go into the new portfolio or not.
