Hey, remember that little sneak peak I gave you a couple of posts ago? Well here are the deets:

Janine Vangool, the publisher/editor/designer extraordinaire behind the beautifully curated UPPERCASE magazine, contacted me about participating in a super fun feature for issue 7, called "I'm Feeling Bookish." The idea was to design a book cover for not just any old story, but for my story. A self-portrait of sorts, in my favorite format. Of course I was thrilled, and I had a lot of fun figuring out what to do for it—would I focus on my love for cute things like hamster hands and baby turtles? My love for learning? My love for my 3 older sisters? I decided that I'd have the most fun exploring something that's actually been much on my mind as of late: my passive gluttony. I just plain love food. (Ask my jeans... they'll tell you.)

Yep, any excuse to draw my favorite foods, and I'll take it. Anyway, it was a fabulous opportunity, and I can't thank Janine enough for including me. I was in great company as well, sandwiched between my 2 supreme favorites, the suave Jim Tierney and the Queen of Book Covers, Coralie Bickford-Smith! Check out how it looked in print (I'm including Jimmy's too, because he's my man):

Pretty great! Major thanks again to Janine, not only for the honor of inviting me to be a part of this, but also for being such a dedicated purveyor and promoter of beauty. Seriously, if you haven't subscribed to UPPERCASE yet, um, what exactly are you waiting for?
