(as a side note, the top image is not the book cover...)By power of the internet, artist and agent extraordinaire, Tim Jones contacted me to do a series of character designs...and later a look and feel for the book series.
Here are the characters in the very beginning stages:I'm beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Tim, Charlesbridge, and Stuart J,. Murphy on these books. This book series is just like the type I was addicted to as a kid. I can only hope these have the same effect on the little ones!
The series launches in Fall of 2010 with four titles and I'm set to begin illustrating another very soon!
