Book sneak peak!

Where have I been all this time? What've I been up to? Well I haven't been lounging next to a pool working on my suntan (although I've wanted to). I've spent the majority of my summer on a project which is very important to me, and which may be the most important thing I've done yet, as someone who draws pictures for a living: a book!

I got the OK to put a few teaser images up here. They are not full pages, just little snippets to give you an idea of what the book will look like. Enjoy!
