Louie V, from The Secret Adventures of Louie V, has returned. This furry fun feline is ready to celebrate something great. I guess you and Louie will have to wait to find out what is going on. But my illustrations are done and on the way for Tracey Delio's newest Book, Louie V. Takes the Cake. So much fun to sketch and paint this lively cat through his point of view. Take a peek at Louie's Life and you will agree, Louie is a Love.
