From Denver, Mumbai, and Space

Congratulations to Cassie Beasley, my infinitely talented student, whose second middle grade novel, Tumble and Blue, is currently in press and whose Circus Mirandus turned my advising life into pure joy during Cassie’s final semester at VCFA.

Untitled-17Imagine my delight when I discovered that the amazing art for Cassie’s new book cover comes from this duo, Hari and Deepti. Fantastic! A new India connection in American children’s publishing who make paper art with lightboxes!

Look at the deep colors, the glow from the backlit art. Look at that exquisite cut paper work. I hope we’ll see more of their art before too long.
