Week four. July 2015.

Last week's monsoon kept me from painting outdoors, but it gave me the opportunity to work on an indoor project that I've been thinking about for a while - making a picture book for toddlers illustrated with my paintings. Here's the cover:


It was one of the most engrossing things I've done in a while. I brushed up on my layout and Photoshop skills and learned a bit about copyright law and ISBN numbers. I spent a luxurious afternoon at the library looking at beautifully-illustrated children's books. I created Bird Forest Press and designed it's logo. And best of all I got to daydream about my friends, the tractors, and what they like to do.

You can see the full preview of the book (all 15 pages of it!) and buy a copy for $18 plus shipping by clicking HERE. It'll take about 30 seconds to load up so please be patient.
