I need time to complete my debut work in Children's picture books. The fully illustrated book tells the story of a boy falling in love.
Working 12 hours a day can be tough on an aspiring writer/illustrator.
Its time to push passed the struggles and capture the opportunity to create something great. I have begun to create a fully illustrated 54-page children's picture book. I have chosen to go the route of traditional illustration, by relying solely on drawing and visual elements with minimal text. This has provided me with a daunting task of pumping out 54 pages of vibrant and articulate illustration. I have come from the school of thought that a single image can tell an entire story all on its own.
This story specifically follows what I have experienced and learned about falling in love and how these types of interactions can play out. The story is more of a picture book friendly derivative of my real life experience that all can enjoy. The illustration itself is more mature in approach and style, yet the story and themes can be picked up by young and old alike. I cannot be misleading and say that this book will paint the prettiest picture of the connection between people. The book itself evolves just as relationships and love change with time. This story will guide the reader along a visual roller coaster of infatuation, frustration, regret, acceptance, and indecision. The visual style and imagery is also as erratic and spontaneous as the theme and mood entails.
This page was created to cover the cost of time needed to finish this book. My target funds raised was carefully and fairly calculated to fit exactly what I would need to bring this project out of the limbo it is in now to fully complete the book, and have it ready for publishing. I have full confidence in my abilities and skill, and I would never doubt my own determination and dedication to my craft. Thank you so much for reading and I hope you consider helping me get my project off the ground!
