Drum City Coming to a City Near You!
Hello Picture- Bookies!!
I just wanted to tell everyone about the surprise I got in the mail yesterday.
Over a year ago I got to work on a wonderful book written by Thea Guildone.
It's was her very first book called "Drum City."
Tricycle Press sent me a copy and I was so happy with how it came out. I had such fun with this
book. I got to do pretty much what I wanted to do which is very rare in picture books.
What happens when a boy is over heard playing his homemade drum in his back yard? A bunch of
kids get inspired and want to join in!!! The whole city becomes a drum of sorts. I got to do collage
in this book which is my favorite. The book has a retro feel and has so many fabulous characters
in it. I come from a very multicultural back ground so it shows up in my illustrations.
The book is due in stores in June 2010.
Have a great weekend everyone!
