I asked if she was game to join with me on this project and she said yes! Congrats to Kathryn E. Mills, the winner of my competition to find the artist for That’s How Much I Love You, a children’s e-book, coming this fall.

Special thanks go out to finalists Melissa Larson and Michelle Yee, as well as the others that took the time to enter the competition. I truly value your work and your effort.

Here are some other (and bigger) samples of Kathryn’s work–sketches she’ll now turn into full-color artwork. I think her pictures are both tender and playful, perfect for our preschool crowd. And as Laura Bryant (my other artist partner) said, “If labradors don’t say unconditional love, I don’t know what does.”

Look for our book in September!
