Inspirational Thought...

FYI, just posted a new inspirational thought...

This is my prayer for you:
"Comfort on difficult days
Smiles when sadness intrudes
Rainbows to follow the clouds
Laughter to kiss your lips
Sunsets to warm your heart
Hugs when spirits sag
Beauty for your eyes to see
Friendships to brighten your being
Faith so that you can believe
Confidence for when you doubt
Courage to know yourself
Patience to accept the truth
Love to complete your life!"

Another Book Cover Complete! Yay!!

Mr. Pitt & Lickety's Split's book cover is finally complete! Yay!!  This cover took the longest because I couldn't make up my mind about the way I wanted it to look. I knew what I didn't want...but didn't really know what I wanted. So it took Jeff the illustrator many tries before I was satisfied with the cover art. I am so relieved!!!! I was beginning to worry that Jeff would think I was becoming a major pain! However, being that he is so patient, he was more than happy to oblige all my requests. I believe I requested about 3 nose changes and about 4 different cover layouts.

Finally complete and ready for upload, here it is...

I think it turned out great!! Now compare the re-illustration created by the illustrator (above), with the original illustrations my son drew, at age 12 (below). For the complete story behind my son's drawings, read the Blog post dated July 29, 2011 titled "My Son The Illustrator."
