Topping everything off, when I arrived home I was notified that I had just won the contract to illustrate a new children's picture book for Piñata Books/Arte Público Press tenatively titled "The Frog/La Rana" based on a traditional Spanish sing-a-long nursery rhyme. I am blown away!
This is my second children's book illustration contract this year. I am also illustrating a YA book titled "Deerskin Daughters: True Stories of Native American Women" written by Peggy Caravantes.
Underwater singing frogs AND Deerskin Daughters! It doesn't get any better than that!

Have a great week,
