I received an invite, which I graciously accepted, to the Picture-Bookies Showcase, a new blog specifically for showcasing the art of Picture Book Illustrators.

Although the objective is not to create new art, I decided to illustrate this week’s topic: "By Appointment Only". Then when I saw that this week's Illustration Friday word was "Green", I felt like I hit two birds with one rock.

(Side note: No actual birds were hurt in the creating of this illustration.)
