I just found out yesterday that the book I illustrated for author Ivan Jensen can now be found on the Barnes and Noble website. Click here for a direct link. That is pretty exciting news for us both. And www.illustrationfriday.com has the perfect theme today for my shout out. Book! So I'm posting one of my favorite illustration spreads to celebrate.
Mary Rode to Bethlehem on Me was so much fun to illustrate because the story is bursting with animal characters. And a very famous family. On the flip side it was also a very difficult book to illustrate. See all that hay? Well, it was on almost every page. But a manger without hay. No way!
The book includes a musical score of the poem like story. And an accompanying CD of music can be purchased. Perfect for Christmas!
P.S. I have a new illustrated recipe over at TDAC. It is for a special Summer breakfast. And is chipmunk approved. Here's the link Summer Breakfast
