I love a deadline <3 reason #73 why I am well-suited to the job of Kid Lit Illustrator. Here's #2 of 4 postcards, sent out just ahead of the April 1st deadline. Features one of my images from "Putting My Favorites in Outer Space." This one, called "Look What I Found!" depicts two ages on one of my daughters hanging out on a barren moonscape together, at the moment when the younger child finds a glowing Neptune, to her great delight.

The first #4OutTheDoor deadline is tomorrow. This postcard of The Astronauts will be going out to my mailing list. 

STORYSTORM has paid off with a little stack of nearly 40 story ideas, six of which appear worth plucking out and polishing up.

I am grateful for these projects. There is nothing better for quieting the critic, for moving through the self-doubt, than learning and doing actual things.
