4 Down - only 90-some to go...

These covers, which took *much* longer than I had anticipated, are finally 'in the mail'. (Which is also an amazingly time-consuming process: pressing, scanning, labeling, slip-covering, wrapping in plastic, reinforcing with cardboard, packaging in yet more board, labeling, and then taking it out to a FedEx shipper! *whew* It's always another half-a-day just to get mailed. Some days, digital art looks appealing...)

I have from now 'til the end of the year to hurry up and finish all the interiors! It's going to continue to be crazy-busy for the next few months....

Sorry. I miss you....

These are charming, Tara. I know they represent so much time and care. I am rooting for you as you knock out your deadline; one day at a time. great job!

So incredibly beautiful! I just love all the colors and details.

They look really great Tara!

I'm sure many people don't realise that illustration is as much a job of hard graft as it is inspiration and creativity. And as much as we are daunted by the deadline it has to get done. It's not a given though. I missed my last one by one day, after three months of work:¬) The Art Editor was probably on a beach somewhere anyway:¬)

Good luck. I want to see smoke coming off them brushes:¬)

Lovely! They are unified and fresh and inviting - I think you accomplished everything you set out to do with these.

I am partial to the one with the 'Ladies Mantle' as I often think its subtle beauty is underrated. Thanks for raising its profile :)

Irresistible to little girls, for sure. The colors alone will have the books in their hands. All the best to you on your interiors.

Just checking. :)

90-something? There aren't as many days left in the year! The best of luck to you! I hope the interiors will be much less time consuming. These are wonderfully polished.
