My final tie to my beloved Chicago has officially been severed. First, Julie and I left our Chicago apartment for our sweet new home in the Chicago 'burbs. Second, I quit my insane-commute-to job in Chicago (just last September). And third, I've just closed down the post office box I held in Chicago for the past several years. I have a new p.o. box (as also noted on my website) for those who ought to know. And that is:
P.O. Box 8583
Gurnee, IL 60031-7018
In other news, I'm still in covers on the two current picture books I'm working on. TOOT! TOOT! ZOOM! (written by Phyllis Root, Candlewick) and MIGHTY CASEY (James Preller, Feiwel and Friends). CASEY had previously been resolved, but after some more recent consideration, an alternative has been requested. Something a little louder (like the story itself). No prob. One of a few sketches I just sent out, below.
