Creating A Children’s Book

Leave a comment

My latest project!

I am so pleased to be creating the story line for my new children’s picture book. Friend, and artist, Heather Lamb, is the illustrator and has perfectly captured the essence of my characters. As creating a children’s picture book is a first for us both, it is definitely a learning process, but exciting nonetheless. The story and theme will be released at a later date, as will the book in 2017. For now, we will continue to work diligently to perfect our work in the hope of pleasing children everywhere.

My efforts to date.

While I have much catching up to do before I could even remotely emulate Heather’s artistic talent, for those of you who have shown curiosity over how my art lessons are progressing, here are a couple of acrylic paintings I completed over the past couple of weeks. I’m aware there is a lot of practice in my future!

For anyone interested in picking up artist’s tips, a great link is:, where artist David Dunlop offers valuable information. He is a fantastic artist in many genres, and his blog is definitely worth a subscribe. He also offers DVD’s of works in progress.
