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!
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.
Mr. Tudo finds a scary surprise at the beach! In a blind panic he jumps on his frightened mule and vanishes through the old forest.
They rush toward town through the thick forest to warn everyone of the apparent danger that is coming there way!
This is an info graphic based on the illustration I created in spread 10 of a children’s book I have written and am illustrating right now.
It was initially a messy sketch on a piece of paper that I used to try and make sense of how the distiller would actually work in the world I created.
This was fun and a great way to understand how anything works.
I really enjoy illustrating maps. So creating this imaginative world for my storybook was utter bliss.
I hope you enjoy diving into my world. Take care!
Another spread, a lot to go! I’m feeling the burn to meet my goal for completing my book project! On to the next one now.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! I’ll have some more pieces up soon. Thanks everyone.
I’ve finished another spread of my book! My book project is scheduled for completion on October 15, 2014.
I’m really excited for that, but for now I’m just enjoying the process, creating an awesome world that I believe people will love.
Thanks for always coming back to my blog to view my portfolio! All the best to everyone!
I just arrived back from my trip to the Azores just over a week ago. I spent two weeks in paradise and I miss it already!
I spent time with my cousin and her husband and enjoyed many dinners out with them.
I painted this for them in memory of our time spent together and the great memories I took back from my time there.
I’m sending them a print as a gift. I think they will love it.
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.
It’s a trip to South America, and a famous scout leader has brought this grade school class out to explore the wilderness!
There is a lot to be discovered out here, and SO much to learn.
I can see this in a children’s magazine, can you?
