Original Children's Book Preview
The artwork is mixed media using mostly markers, colored pencils, crayons, and cutting and pasting different textured/colored paper. I really enjoyed making most of this children's book, but alas! I had no idea that I shouldn't have started working on the finished product before I submitted the rough outline and sketches to a publisher first. So, I have this entire children's book that is basically finished that I probably can't sell to a publisher, and it just stays in a folder in my desk. Maybe one day I will redo it the professional way, or maybe one day I will just put it together myself and self-publish it. I don't really know.
And now that I am looking at it... I think I could redo it with much better artwork. I like the colors and textures, but the subject itself could be more interesting. My scanner did not do this justice.
