Sad news to report. Our dog, Vader, passed away last night. He was only 3 years old but had suffered from seizures of which I am sure had a hand in his sudden passing. I often teased my wife and kids saying he was their dog but truly he was the family dog. Though short it was, I feel Vader had a good life filled with bacon, belly rubs and back scratches.
Good bye little black curly haired dog. You will be missed.

Well we got the Little Guy in his resting place, a good bit of shade and a nice view of the yard where he would run and play. Placed with him a toy he loved, a bonus toy from a friend of ours, rosemary and lavender... And in just like in those films where there is a funeral it began to rain.
Rest well, Vader.

Worky Work

I've been busy working on a few book projects and building up an inventory for art festivals being held this Fall. For one of the book projects (possibly a series), the writer and I have not had any bites, maybe a nibble. We think an agency may pick us up but I am still awaiting word. In the meantime I have been working on an alphabet book with the same writer and plan to self publish. For my book "Fern", I had put it on the shelf concentrating on the illustrations with the said writer and I may try to work on it more in between all these other projects in progress.
