Broccoli Makes You Run Faster

For my self-directed final project, I wrote and illustrated a children's book. After finishing, I realized that this really is something that I want to pursue. I also realized that planning, writing, editing, thumbnailing, sketching, finalizing, doing the line work, colouring, collaborating with a friend to lay it out, and printing it are all tasks that together generally should be planned over the span of a year and not four months. Nonetheless, It is finished and I bound the cover by hand!
The whole ordeal was stressful at times, but generally it was a huge experience that I will definitely be starting again this winter!

I'm going to fix it up and then start selling it on Amazon, so I'll let you know when it is available.

more mermaids

I promised myself that I would wait until gradshow to bust out the mermaids. I'm going a bit crazy.
