It’s always a big day when I finish the illustrations for a new book ship them off to publisher. To celebrate the completion of the most recent one – about a boy who teaches a baby bird to sing – my wife gave me a musically-adorned bird.
As I write this, the studio windows are open for the first time this year and the birds are singing up a storm, so everyone seems to be celebrating.
Thanks to my wife for the birdie and her everlasting patience, and to Christy Ottaviano for bringing this wonderful project to me.
