Work for National Geographic

Hello All,
I just wanted to share a little bit about what I've been working on and what's on my desk.
I have been doing work for National Geographic under Hamilton-Brown Publishing. It's been
pretty busy around here too and I'm happy for that!!! This is a piece I did for a children's
Phonic's book. There are a few pieces that I have done that I hope to share later on.
I so enjoy doing work like this. Sometimes it's a crazy deadline in front of me,
but I do love what I get to do every single day and that is create! It's joy! How many people
can say that they get to do what they love and get paid for it too??? GOD IS GOOD! he he he!!
Well it's time to go back to work. So I will be checking in on Yall a little later during the week.
Keep your heads up!
Have a sweet one Yall!

Just kidding. hehehehe Congratulations on the great job. Yes God is good.
