Final Spectrum Preview

I've been putting off posting the last piece of mine to make it into this year's Spectrum annual. It's the cover of my first novel, The True Meaning of Smekday, which won't be published until September. So I though this post could be better timed to the release of the book, but oh well. I'll be posting more about Smekday and my other fall release, Pssst!, in the coming months, so please visit often and remember to tip your waitress.

Incidentally, if you'd like to learn a little more about The True Meaning of Smekday, click here.

What a difference getting on Drawn! makes. This post now has three times as many comments as my most popular post previously.
That was more alliteration than I intended.
Anyway, thank you all for your comments, and I hope you become regular visitors. I promise to try to keep posting stuff that will appeal both to kids' book afficianadoes and to illustrators in general.

Novel?!? My goodness, you keep surprising us! You're pulling a Howard Pyle on us, what with the prolific illustrating and writing. Very nice book cover, Mr. Rex.

Reading your book now. It's out of this world! (Did a Boov write it?)

So maybe the joke didn't go over very well...

Anyway, it's a fun read and will suggest it to all of my friends... Not that they read but I'll recommend it none the less.
