So I just got back from visiting friends and family in California, and I have some exciting new updates..
First, The Little Matador was accepted into The Original Art 2008 exhibition at the Museum of American Illustration! One of the paintings from the book, will be on display from October 15 through November 26. This is especially fun, because I had to teach myself how to paint for this project, and exactly a year ago, I was in a mad rush to redo half the book's paintings that I wasn't feeling very confident about. Lil'Matty came within a day or two of getting delayed a year.
