I've been quietly working on this children's book project with a friend for over a year now and we're very close to being able to launch it. We've had the first 10,000 books printed in China and they're on their way to in the US now.

Here are a few images from the book, which is all about the power of following your dreams...



Hope you like those!

It's been great to be working in a team, albeit a tiny 2 artist team, still a team, where we could bounce ideas around and make the book get better and better with each revision.

For me it's been a good lesson in character development and stylistic development.The images were painted digitally using a pressure sensitive stylus (apple pencil) on a 12.9" iPad Pro in the Procreate app.

Here's part of the development of the first page:


I'll let you know when the book is ready.


Happy Painting!
