The excitement of riding on the Comet for the first time inspired me to write my book. I hope people will feel what I felt when I rode on the Comet. At the Morgan Museum, I saw illuminations that were very detailed, and that inspired me to use more detail in this book than I usually do with my artwork. The most difficult part of this project was deciding which color of paint to use throughout the illuminations. I'm used to using many colors, and with this book I was only allowed to use four.
