The Rough Draft Road

The Go Cart-8

How wonderful it’s been these past few months to take our short film, The Go Cart, from screen to page.  A special shout-out to the superb editing stylings of The Republic of Letters.

With a strong, working draft in-hand, our newest adventure is to locate an Illustrator who can take the story to the next level.  I can’t wait to join forces for book-good! Below is my drawing inspired by none other than Author/Illustrator Tom Watson of the beloved Stick Dog (and Stick Cat) Series.

Thanks to Anderson’s Bookshop, I had the pleasure of attending the 18th Annual Children’s Literature Breakfast. Tom was one of many excellent speakers featured throughout the day.

Here are some of my favorite illustrations from Children’s Literature that  I’ve combed over these past several months.  So much beauty, simplicity, complexity – all conveyed through style, positioning, and perspective.

Can you tell how excited I am?  I’ll keep you posted.  In the meantime, you can go here to watch the film.

Until next time.
