“A chirping chorus wakens Annie” – a full color illo from part three of Douglas has a Dilemma. You can read some of parts one and two here and here.
Douglas has a Dilemma, my illustrated love story for adults, has grown since its inception in the summer of 2009. Two years ago I was fortunate to be signed by a great lit agent. Since then, with her guidance, I’ve been rewriting, editing and sketching to prepare my small book for submission to publishing houses. This illo is one of the final (I hope!) steps.

My short illustrated story for adults, Douglas has a Dilemma, has evolved since it was first conceived of as an entry into the 2009 McKinney Avenue Contemporary’s (the MAC) annual membership show. I’ll write more about that later but for now I just want to introduce a bit more of Douglas’s story. It’s been on the back burner – and sometimes the front burner, but on simmer – for quite a while. But isn’t that the way it often is with complicated love stories? You can read the first part of his story here and the first part of the second part (! I know!) here.
