Sleeping Bear Press, the folks who are publishing Ozzie, asked me to illustrate an early reader book written by JudyYoung, whose work I love. After a few rounds of character studies and preliminary sketches, I am now rolling along on final art. Digger and Daisy will be out in September and my final art is due April 1, which is why I’m typing so fast right now. Here is the approved character sketch of our canine brother and sister. More on D & D later.
