I received some great new dog/cat rescue stories this past fall and have been busy painting and rewriting (where needed) . Now that the work is done, we are busy finding a new publisher in the Kansas City area that will do small book runs for us. I don’t really think of myself as an illustrator, so sometimes it has been a challenge to paint the story. Some stories and photos look really very easy to translate…but then aren’t! What’s best about the whole project is reading and re-reading the submitted stories and gazing at the photos of the many lucky dogs and cats that have found a great (and sometimes very patient) home.
