Thwarted Summer Greeting


Here's an image I drew some time ago to celebrate the publication of Crockett Johnson's Magic Beach by Front Street in the US. I was invited to submit an homage illustration which would be posted with others on their website. I created it in an afternoon and emailed it over, but for some reason they never received the image, a fact which was overlooked until it was far too late.

Oh well! Had things worked out differently this summer, I'd intended to print it up as postcards and send it to publishers across the continents, but family circumstances intervened. I was hardly in a seasonal celebratory mood either of course. It seems this illustration is doomed forever to be hidden to the public. Well, not if I can help it, at least I can post it here on my blog!
