It's the first day of Summer!! It's the 200th post on this blog! And it's time to talk about Pumpkins!!

This morning I received an e-mail from my art director pointing out the review the people at Kirkus did of Pumpkin Day!, the tiny lovely little book I illustrated last year for Random House. It's coming out quite soon!!!

It's this little tale of a family of four taking a day trip to pick the perfect pumpkin to carve. It took away my whole of September 2014 - I literally have no memory of that month except waking up every day at 8, 8:15 am on my friend's living room (I was between flats) when she would get up to go to work, grab breakfast and start painting away until 2 am or so. Thank goodness for her view, or I would've gone mad:

Not BAD, huh? It was mental. Very mental.

Either way, I survived, I moved to my flat, and I kept on working away in other things - so this morning the review made me quite giddy, since I hadn't thought of that cover in ages and I'm in a completely different place now.
I know I will lose it whenever I receive the physical copies. I just know it.

*whispers*: you can already pre-order it if you want!!! :D :D *glee*
