"It's not smart to be mean to a reptile"-Cornelia

Friday, July 10, 2009

Here is Cornelia, very angered by an off-screen bully, Jason, who happens to be taunting her pet snake, Corny, during Show-and-Tell. She's pretty miffed. I wished there were boots like that in real world, so I just painted them onto her. Actually, my designer at Scholastic remarked that she owns a pair just like that and was wearing them the day she brought the first cover to the meeting! So I carried them over from book 1. This is the cover art for book 2 concerning the Corny and Cornelia capers, written by Pam Muñoz Ryan, published by Scholastic, 2010.

Happy Friday ♥
