My First Wordless Picture Book
I have been working on a wordless picture book over the past few weeks and the inspiration for the story came while I was diligently working away in the studio drawing. So, there I was, sketching away like a mad artist without any intentions or plans on creating a story. I then focused on a couple of characters I really liked from my sketchbook and started to draw them again, and again, and again.
Over the past year I have been working on two other kids books. One book is about health and healthy eating and the other is about being creative and using your imagination. I have also been toying with the idea of creating a wordless picture book and one thing lead to another and I started creating some more art. Randomly a few weeks ago I had an "a-ha" moment and I started putting the pieces together and created a rough outline of the story. It's funny how things happen and how this story without any words at all came together.
Here is the first drawing of my new story and kids book.
Here's a painting I finished last year called Puppy vs Alien. I am sure you've had this conversation amongst friends and family right? You know the question I am talking about, it's the age old question about who will win in a fight of Puppy vs Alien?
No? You haven't had that conversation? Oh and I am suppose to be the weird one here?
You're right I am and this is my magical mind! I will take you to places you never thought existed, at least that's my plan any way.
Here is the painting in all it's glory....
Happy Ground Hog Day!
Here's a quick sketch and watercolor I did this morning in hopes the little guy sees his shadow for 6 more weeks of Winter!
Up here in New Hampshire, we will probably get 12 more weeks of Winter even though it's been really warm and haven't had much of a Winter this year.
That's all today, Happy Tuesday!
I've been creating art in some form or another all my life and it's what I love to do.
