I am due to give birth to my second child this Sunday. I am relieved and overjoyed that 'she' didn't come early, as I had a book deadline right around now! I made it. In fact, I just gave birth to the art for my first book, which I both wrote and illustrated called, I'm Your Peanut Butter Big Brother (Knopf). It will be out in Spring of 2009, when my real life child passes her first birthday. Ah, publishing! Impatience aside, it really was the perfect project for me to work on throughout this pregnancy, as it is a story about an little boy imagining what his soon-to-be-born baby sibling will look like. The protagonist is my beautiful son, Isaiah; the model of Peanut Butter Perfection. And so the story flowed, as did the art's creation. I can't wait for both baby Q number 2 and Peanut Butter Big Brother to make their appearances!
