It has been an embarrassingly long time since I updated my site. I think since I created a FB page, I no longer bothered with my own site. That's life, I suppose. I'm always into something new and this year I decided to write a children's book. I had a story in mind and wanted my son, Quinn, to illustrate since he had demonstrated talent. Last year he wrote and illustrated a book of his own that he gave out as Christmas present. He wasn't interested. I asked my mother-n-law who was interested, but didn't have time.
I decided I would have to try it myself. I am a web designer and have always been able to draw if looking at something, but never to just think of something and draw it. I figured I might have a chance if I did it in illustrator which is quite forgiving. If nothing else I will have tried. Guess what? Turns out I CAN draw... it just takes me a while! I learned too that like anything else, the more you practice the better you get. My the end I found I was able to think of something and draw onto paper a little better than before (but still not great).
I had lots of fun working on this book that is based on a true story and my 4 year old bundle of energy, Irie. If you buy it see if you can find the three minor mistakes that were overlooked before it went to print! (Hey, you might even find more!)
