If clothes make the man…

If there is any truth to the notion that the clothes make the man, then it is certainly true that the illustrations make the book.  At least that’s an emphasis I prefer. To that end, I have spent a decent amount of energy trying to find the best illustrator For Daddy Tries.

As a sort of interview or trial run, I asked Jessica Warrick to do a portrait of my dog, Dash. I saw the work she did on an awesome looking bulldog, and of course Hammer and Nails, so I was eager to see if she could work her magic with a Vizsla.

I was so excited about the final drawing.  The results speak for themselves.
