Zig is "off to production". A phrase that sings in my ears!
Thank you, Lucia, thank you Lily, thank you Maya!!! I enjoyed working with you all SO MUCH! Even though I have illustrated about 25 books, this kind of team work hasn't happened much.
The good thing is that we are due for another book together. YEAH!
And thank you to my fabulous agent, Linda, who liked Zig right from the start!

I can hardly believe it! Zig is done and delivered!!! Took the whole package to city myself yesterday. I have to say, the pages looked good all spread out on the huge display tables at Dial. Doesn't mean I'm off the hook. Now we have to discuss type and layout. Still I can clear my work space. It's been covered with collage material for months!

Note about lost art back in the winter: what felt like a disaster turned out to be a good thing. On one hand, I am happier with the redone pieces. (Hard to admit but true.) On another hand, it pushed me to shake my tendency to inertia and go to the city to visit with my editor/art director team. I have enjoyed meeting with them all so much!
