Ok, I just accepted a book project with Harcourt. They'd like for me to do something along the line of Summer Sun Risin'. Don't ask me how I plan to squeeze in 10 paintings between now and February, but they are emailing the manuscript today. I'm supposed to start sketches for R around the first of February, and Z is just kind of floating up there ready to drop anytime between now and...well, I don't know. I just bought a brand new car on a used car budget. So, it'll all have to work itself out. Geez, I hated turning away the SF project.
Oh, and did I mention the toss designs with DT and WM are a "definite go!"
