Sam and Ben was such an accomplishment for me, I’ve been sharing it with everyone and getting great reviews and feedback.
If you haven’t seen it yet, the book’s website is http://www.sambenbook.com
. You can also buy the book through pinwheelbooks.com OR amazon (just type in my name people!)
Looking back though, this spread is definitely a contender for a favorite of mine:
This was my favorite spread to lay out and illustrate. It showcases what I love to do – draw and paint kids in whimsical poses – and the short phrase allowed me ample space to play with the imagery and really let it shine.
Let me know which spread is your favorite!
Sam and Ben is about to make its debut to the online market! You can buy a copy of the hardcover or paperback online (to start), and for the iphone, ipad, nook, and kindle starting this weekend! I’ve been marketing the heck out of my company this past month and loving every minute of it.
I spent June completing my first.published.book!
Sam and Ben are nearly print-ready, just down to some minor font changes and text edits by my publisher. I’ve also taken on a new role as Pinwheel Books Marketing/Sales/Creative Consultant and have been sending out all that is great about our local publishing house into the social media web.
For now, a teaser! Be on the lookout for Pinwheel Books posts soon.
This month I’ve been busily applying for new jobs, finishing up my internship at the Boston Children’s Museum (tear tear!!) and most importantly, painting the spreads for SAM AND BEN!
I’m going to save the color for the final product, but here’s a cover idea/sketch:
Enjoy and love the twins!
Here’s a sneek peak of what i was up to in the rainy days of early May:
