Children’s Book

March 16, 2011

 

Have you ever read this book The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds? It’s only a few pages but it’s absolutely wonderful, and it has a beautiful message – “The Dot is more than a book about art. It is a book that encourages us to be brave about expressing ourselves. It gently reminds us to start small and explore the IDEA.” –  Peter H. Reynolds.

I keep it on the bookshelf in my studio. I think children’s books are so carefree and fun and inspirational! I hope to write and illustrate one myself someday. See my sister [who is the best big sister ever and a true character!] has been giving me material for this for years. I intend to title the series Karen Cries. Each one a different story [Karen Cries because she gets lost; Karen Cries because she is afraid of thunderstorms, etc.] Below are some of my initial sketchings inspired by The Dot. Just a little bit of practice, trying to find a style I like and get comfortable with it. What do we think?

    I love this whole book idea. I think children’s books are THE most important thing for them. And I do like the sketches Kate!
