Happy book birthday, Yak and Dove!!! I cannot believe the day has come for this little book to make it's way on to your shelves! I have so many people I want to thank but first I want to thank the incredibly talented @kyomaclear for writing Yak and Dove into the world! As soon as I became serious about becoming an illustrator, i was immediately drawn to Kyo's sensitivity and humor in her writing. It was an honor to be able to work with her and it is an honor to be her friend! And another special thank you to our marvelous editor @tarawalker19 .Thank you, Tara, for all of the years of friendship and guidance and magical thinking and for always nurturing the real me and my love of borscht. I also want to thank my partner @itsdanielkaufman for all of his support, for wrapping me up in blankets when I fell asleep after working long nights, for spoon feeding me pozole when I was sick and needed to keep going on my final paintings. And another big thank you to my Mom @judedryland for always being one phone call away. Whenever I was nervous about meeting my deadline and felt like my eyes were about to pop out of my head, Mom always gently reminded me "this is just your process." Another big hug to my Dad and sister @hannadryland as well, for all of their encouragement. Another huge thank you to the wonderful team at Charlotte Sheedy Literary Agency and @tundrabooks for being such an incredible publishing house to work with!! Every book takes a village and I say Thank you to my whole community for all of the support. I hope you can dive into Yak and Dove's world and feel fuzzy and dove like inside. 😍
