Finished. One Hundred and Eleven Illustrations.

I'm giddy with happiness. The picture above was the 111th illustration, and I finished it this morning. (This one isn't the last picture in the book––actually, it falls in Chapter 3.)  All these illustrations are for my first chapter book called It's Not Easy Being Mimi, to be published Fall of 2018 by Beach Lane Books / Simon & Schuster.

My long list of illustrations. It was so much fun crossing them out one by one as I finished them. Two months ago I could not imagine getting through this list. Isn't all that pink highlighter glorious?
