Create a clock from a picture book

Here is a fun way to add some interest to those boring walls!

Gather a few of your favorite picture books and convert them into appealing clocks to hang on your walls.

If you have a favorite picture book laying around, maybe you can try making a picture book clock…then of course replace the picture book with a fresh new copy.

Create a clock from a picture book!

Have fun.

How to bind your own Hardback Book

Some of you may know that I am illustrating a children’s picture book that i wrote a few years ago.

It’s well on its way and although I will be seeking out publishers for my book, I thought it would be really fun to print it out and bind a hardback myself.

I’m excited to do it, and when I finish with the illustrations I will bind the book and post some great photos of the process and the finished product.

For now, if you’re interested in binding your own hardback book then you may want to take a look at this website.

The instructions are good and I’ll be using them as my source for the process.

Happy binding!

A New Day

This is a spread from my current project, with the story excluded.

I will post a synopsis of the story soon, after I finish up with a few smaller projects.

I’m researching ways certain publishers prefer to accept book ideas. Everybody is different. I have a really promising list now, and I’m excited to introduce my book in the future!

If you’re a Canadian illustrator or writer looking for a list of publishers, here’s a great link:

The Canadian Children’s Book Centre

I’m not sure what the American equivalent of the link above would be, but I hope this helps someone.
