On Tom's recommendation, zipping over here from Facebook TAG.
So here's the sketch for my new book with Clarion -- I just got the news yesterday that they bought it! This is the first book I've sold based on one spread (sketch) and the manuscript. Wow, that's a lot less work than doing the whole dummy before I show it to the publisher. So, I think this is pretty unique -- very much a graphic novel format in a 32 page picture book for little kids. I'm inspired by artists from Sendak (everything) to Shaun Tan (The Arrival) to Brian Selznick (The Invention of Hugo Cabret) and hope I've got my own little take on the idea.
