Scared dog is the illustration for my 3rd promotional card in a series of 4. If you'd like to cheat and view all 4 cards, visit my newly updated website at http://www.sharonrwagner.com/ And Scared dog in a funny way really represents how I've been feeling lately. I've suffered through 2 nasty cold and flu bugs over the last 3 weeks. I've been sick as a dog. And I'm sort of scared to venture too far out of the doghouse for fear of human germs. Maybe I should stop pawing so many public doorknobs. Or sniffing up all those nasty human viruses. At least I still have a sence of humor! Actually things aren't so bad. I have some good news to bark about. I won the Minnesota Society of Children's book Writers and illustrators 2009 mentorship award. A year under the wing of the very successful illustrator/teacher Carrie Hartman. http://www.carriehartman.blogspot.com/ I'm dog-gone pleased!
