its finally done!!!!

So, for the past two months I have been slaving away, night and day, working on illustrations for a kid's book called "Bruce the Hannukah Moose." Its about a young moose who, after years of not fitting in with the other animals, discovers his antlers are in the shape of a perfect menorah, and becomes the village hero. Think Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, only Jewish (and like Rudolph, it also has a musical accompaniment). It was a great project to work on, as everyone involved are all long time friends, and business meetings also meant margaritas. The book hasn't been completed yet - its due out closer to the holiday season. Because of this I can't show too much... but here's a quick sneak preview.

Now that its finally finished, I'm off to lay on a beach somewhere exotic and cell-phone free to recuperate!
