Our regional SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) conference is coming up this weekend, so I really wanted to have some new work to show. Here’s something I’ve been noodling on the last couple days:

If you want to know why there’s a guinea pig on the back of the sled, she used to be a ground squirrel and had a species change a few minutes ago.  Maybe she’s an escaped city pet going on the adventure of a lifetime with a couple backwoods critters. She seems pretty brave, but she should definitely keep an eye on that fox… that is, if she survives her first sled ride. Weeeeeeeeeeee!
