Getting the right expression is important for illustrations in picture books. Being an author/illustrator, I am always looking for ideas for my books. As soon as I took this picture of Rocket I knew it would find its way into one of my books. Rocket, a Havanese, is my dog Henry's best friend and I made a picture book about the two of them.
In the book, Rocket abandons Henry to go play with the bigger cool dogs and gets into serious trouble. You can read all about it for free in my gallery.
