Sylvia Hotel Centenary

The Sylvia is celebrating its 100th birthday this year. There is a lovely article in today's Vancouver Sun that tells the history of the this heritage site and mentions the Mister Got to Go books and the cat who inspired them. Here's an illustration from the new book. Working hard to get the art done.

Mr Got to Go Where Are You? progresses - slowly

I rotate from picture to picture while painting illustrations. I'm very behind schedule because it is excruciatingly slow-going trying to create accurate representations of the Vancouver locations while remaining true to the style of the first two books. Here my cat inspects the state of the pieces. That was a week ago. I've completed six of the spreads since then.
