Too Many Blooms

This week I got to see the published book when it arrived at my house in the mail- Hurray!
For all you tweens out there, this ones for you.  Too Many Blooms is the first in the brand new Petal Pushers series, for which I have created the cover art.
The art director gave me a briefing of the book, and requested sketches of Del 
(our main character which the series revolves around) flustered, dog below, blooms flying.  
These are the two sketches I handed in.

They went with option A, but it just needed to be reversed.  Here we popped it in the cover layout to see how it will look...

Were all happy with the layout- so I hit the paints.  This is the final art...

And here is the final cover, which is now available at the Scholastic store.
Enjoy the read!
