Before I attended Animation school, I attended Art Center college of design. and studied Graphics Packaging Design, and Children's book illustration. The two are similar in that they both tell stories. Picture books have always been my dream to create. I was fascinated with the science behind the picture book, as a child I Loved to read and reread my books, and I remembered the pictures, and the words taking me into my imagination, that would pull me into the story. I Loved and anticipated the page turns.
Everyone that knows me knows how much I love to tell stories, I have always related to children. I worked on Oswald the Octopus which has always inspired me to write and illustrate a picture book and then watch how the characters come alive.
I believe this will really help me with character development, and the animation episodes will come alive. I have been a fan of picture books my whole life. I have a great book that inspires me of the letters from the publisher of great author/illustrators, of all the books I loved growing up. I hope to create a series of books that last the test of time. I am choosing to put my book into digital form for devices, but I am encouraging real books to be read, and not to be lost, because of the ipad, and android devices etc.
