    Adopt-a-Character from The Rosette!!

    Louie was discovered in a Paris toy shot on the Île Saint-Louis. We fell in love with her quirky little personality and she became an important part of the The Rosette story. Over a cup of hot chocolate in a nearby cafe we created her entire backstory; her personality, her role in the story, her skillset. Because she is a platypus she allows us bring a specific dynamic to the story. She is also the comic relief in the story. Her entrance into story comes dramatically through one of the drains from the Seine across from the cafe we were sitting at. We took lots of pictures of the cafe, the street, and the drains and sent them to our illustrator, Mariana to help illustrate the scenes in Paris. Louie continued to travel the world with us and Himmy, but when we returned to Paris many months later, we went to several shops looking for more 'Louies'. .. Her 'replicas' come with a little Eiffel tower keychain to remind her, and you, of her home. We hope you love her as much as we do!!

    Stencil Art Project - Himalaya Footprint

    We brought our main character's sidekick, a snow leopard named Himalaya, out of the book and into the real world through the love of streetart. In the books, Himalaya can make herself invisible to humans, but she leaves behind silver footprints as she walks. We created stencils of her iconic silver footprints (complete with her special heart-shaped pinky toe) and spray painted them around the sidewalks of Paris in September 2017 as a way of bringing her to life. Now you can bring her into your own neighborhood we prepare to bring her story to life. All you need is our stencils that we made from our original handcut paper stencils we created in Paris, and silver paint or white chalk. You'll get two stencils, the first can be used for her three 'regular' paws, and the second is for her front right paw with the special heart-shaped pinky toe. We'll include a few stickers of the Mark of the Rosette to tag near the footprints because The Rosette and Himalaya are never far apart!

    Patrons Name in Book

    Let's face it, bypassing a publisher to create a graphic novel? Collaboration with an illustrator and a colorist means paying them - and that is not cheap because artists not only deserve to get paid. They don't work for free, nor should they. Hopefully neither will the creator and writer, when this is all said and done! Those patrons with angel wings covered in rosettes would be listed in the back of the book with a big THANK YOU!! Everyone who reads The Rosette will know this project couldn't have gotten done with YOU!! It's an ego-biscuit, and it's the old-school variation of a traditional artist patron. Art has never gotten done with out the support of patrons.

    Sketch Lesson w/ Our Illustrator

    Have you always wanted to learn how to sketch? Or wanted to learn about how graphic novel illustrations come to life? Bring a friend and learn with our illustrator, Mariana Prieto!

    You and a friend will meet Mariana in LA or NY (your choice) and she will give you a class on how to use sketching as way to quickly communicate your ideas or how to do illustrations as a graphic novel artist. Through this class you will learn the basics of sketching as a communication tool, tips and tricks to continue to improve after class, and an in depth look at animal illustration. Mariana will tailor the class to your level of experience.

    She graduated from Art Center College of Design and knows all the cool spots for sketching practice all over NY and LA. If you don't want to sketch yourself but want to learn about the process, she'll take you to coffee and show you how she created The Rosette characters, from ideation through illustration and color. Either way it will be lots of fun!
