Snow Day





















This is the jacket illustration for the YA book, Running the Dogs, which is about a rare snow storm in the South.  Most of the books I've illustrated about winter I've worked on in the summer, which can be disorienting at times.  For my book Millions of Snowflakes, I dressed my little model in a snowsuit on a 90 degree day and blew bubbles so she would look up. She was so happy! Now I am working on a spring book... snow is on the way.
