On a fiercely foggy night Lucy groped for her cabin door.  She thought she'd found it and stepped inside, only to find herself in midair on a slow drop into the sea.  Before she began to sink she called out to her parents onboard....  "Bummer!"

In between the lines

Working on a new dummy... but slowly. This one is going to take a while and has already been going on for quite some time.  Little by little things get done, and I am usually happy with the results.  Who knows if this will become a book, but for now, it is taking up the prime space in  my studio.

These are the WINTER PEOPLE 
You have permission to download and print them. Then cut apart to make your very own Holiday/Winter Mural.  You can paste or glue them onto larger paper or use a brown paper bag that you cut apart into one long sheet if you don't have a huge sheet of paper.  These even look good marching arcross an old newspaper;  Recyling is good *:)

New seasonal mailer ready to print

I ordered the seasonal mailers today. They will be here in time for mailing to select publishers and a few friends.    Henry was kind enough to pose for both the front and the backside.  He does get along with cats, but there are limits to his patience.
