I am busy with multiple books, covers, paintings, and work! I am still alive!
On the personal front, I just had a birthday in the midst of it all. For an end-of-the-week fiesta, my roomate and I are setting out to make this very famous (at Curious George bookstore at least) bunny into a birthday cake.
The book "Marshmallow", published by Harper Collins, is a classic re-release of an old Caldecott honor book, first published in 1942. If any of you are unfamiliar with Clare Turlay Newberry's illustrations, take a moment to find her images and hunt her books down (though most are out of print). The moment you open "Marshmallow" you will know why I immediately set my heart on making the protagonist into a cake! Her charcoal bunny gestures are flawless and downright yummy.
Onward with work and life, photos to come!
P.S. Does anyone know where I can buy pink dusty sugar to brush into the ears and nose?
