I was just commissioned to do a piece based on the book Zen Shorts by Jon J. Muth. The illustrations are beautifully done in watercolors and I can definitely see why it won a Caldecott award. The panda in the story is too cute. This looks like it should be a lot of fun, I can't wait to begin. I will probably be doing this on a huge wood panel. I need to make a trip to my local hardware store to be sure.
