When I was doing the research and drawings for our new coloring book, “Costumed Cats, A coloring collection of great cats in history!” I had no idea that while I was drawing and writing about the heroic life of Harricat Tubman, the powers that be at the US Treasury were planning to put her on the front of the twenty dollar bill!  I was thrilled when the news came out and even had to change the wording to put in this amazing new fact!

It’s still not totally ideal since the former slave owner that used to be on the front of the bill will still be on the back of the bill, I still want to celebrate this moment for all great cats in history.  Perhaps one day soon I will again need to change the wording to her image stating that she is on both sides of the bill.  Anyone who knows her story of courage and down right kick ass awesomeness will agree that she deserves it.

Costumed Cats, A coloring collection of great cats in history! is out in about a week.
