As many of you are aware, in 2014, I had the wonderful opportunity to work with writer Andi Smith from :iconwhimsyworks:  WhimsyWorks as the illustrator of the first book in her Wee Beasties series --Wee Beasties: Bedtime. It was just published early this December after many months of hard work and mutual collaborating. While by far not the first book I've ever Illustrated, it is the first one that has been officially published and it marks a major milestone in my career and my life!

This is how most of the book is laid out:

I was allowed to include a dedication in the book and of course it was to my mom for her unending support not just throughout this project but all the ones that came before:

But the best part for me has to be having my very own Amazon Author Page which you can visit here:

I look forward to future opportunities like this one, and hope you will follow me as I reach more milestones and grow as both a writer and illustrator. I also thank you all for your support throughout this year, especially to those who contributed to the Kickstarter that made this book possible, and to those who spread the word around. But most of all to the commissioners that were so patient with me since the work on this book really got on the way of my commissions. I am so grateful to everyone!
