Breadcrumbs comes out TODAY!


Breadcrumbs comes out TODAY!

If you are interested, you may procure a copy via your local friendly bookstore, or there's always Amazon :)

I want to take this chance to show a few more of the interior illustrations I completed for this project. In total, there are 10 of my illustrations throughout the book, and I am excited that they're finally released into the world.






Much has been said already about Breadcrumbs throughout the blogosphere, and indeed, a blog tour starting this week will continue reveal more, all more eloquently than I could. But as the illustrator, I want to throw in my $0.o2 and say that Anne Ursu's writing was a pleasure to illustrate. Already this book is getting all kinds of buzz (starred reviews in Publisher's Weekly, Kirkus) and it's all completely warranted. Her writing is the star of the show, I feel like I just got to do the icing on an already tasty cake. So go try this bookcake. Thank you.

I hope all are well.

These are quite lovely, Erin. The snow covered street is a complete knockout though.

I disagree: I think your cover art is the star of this book. I don't have an iota of desire to read it but I want to buy it just so I can look at your art on the cover. It's brilliant (and I don't read kid lit). And the book wouldn't have half the buzz if not for that dreamy, sparkly, numinous cover.

I am so inspired by your illustrations as graphic designer just starting on this adventure. I attended Ringling in the old days of '82 and intended to make illustration a living but started a wonderful family first so I am playing catchup in my early 50's. I am developing a fun whimsical style in photoshop and hope to show you something fum some day, working on an elf witch who is sassy right now.
