Brooklyn sweet Brooklyn







Fast forward 3 months and the art for, 'B IS FOR BROOKLYN' is finished! It has been quite a journey depicting some of my favorite places in my beloved borough for this hip, new alphabet book. Of course, it won't appear as an actual, honest-to-goodness book for another year and half– but let's not be picky. The art is DONE and I feel good. My job now is to bid this brief, creative period of my life good-bye and take a leap in handing it all over to my Publisher. 'B IS FOR BROOKLYN' (Holt) will hit the shelves in the Spring of 2012. Stay tuned!

I just discovered your blog and these illustrations look great, I look forward to this new book about our great borough.

Also I might mention, that even though my son has made me read him My Subway Ride 10,000 times, I still enjoy the illustrations and searching out the little bits of fabric you used in the collage.
