It's not just the hills that have eyes...


Shhhhhhh.  I'm reading.

Silence is the theme at www.illustrationfriday.com

This pick is timely since I created it for the MNSCBWI fall conference several years ago.  And their annual fall event is just a week away.  I won the illustrator mentorship award that year.  And now my friend and former men tee Nina Crittenden is the current mentor. She illustrated Cedric and the Dragon (the inspiration for the book above) and now is working with a major publisher.  Someone will be very lucky!  

I've come a long way as well since those early days. In frequent flier miles.  Ha!  

But I have illustrated two books since then.  And many moons...
