Lizette's cousin Manuel jokingly asked me to make him a book for his birthday about a cockroach named Pepe. I didn't have time to do the whole book, so he just got the cover.

My daughter just turned two years old. For several months before her birthday she would tell us a story at bedtime about a bug we saw at a restaurant in Uptown Dallas. Keep in mind, this is a story told by a two year old! I decided I would illustrate the story for her and make a book for her birthday present. I can't take any credit for the content (although I did embellish in a couple of places) but I did do the illustrations. I presented the finished book to her on her birthday, and now it is a part of our bedtime routine. It's not my finest work, but I can't say that I've ever felt so good about making art. Hope you enjoy it!
