Book Cover Idea

Well, I have been working my little fingers to the bone.  Pretty much worked non-stop on this design so the author could have something to place on kickstarter.
If anyone is interested they can go to the link shown below.


So Gretchen Leary has written a really lovely story and wants me to illustrate it for her.  Lucky me! As I've stated in earlier posts I have been working on sketches and a dummy book layout.  But, for Gretchen to get going with her kickstarter  I needed to paint the cover of the book.  I'm sure this will change as we go along but for now it is the cover art.
This kickstarter thing is new to me, but very interesting.  So, stay tuned and I'll keep telling you about this amazing journey!


  1. I realized that Kickstarter was not the right platform for the project so it was cancelled and moved to GoFundMe where it is much more successful!

  2. What a charming illustration! Gretchen is a wonderful writer. My daughter has Asperger's and so I am especially interested in Gretchen's work. Her first book is making its way around my church! So you should enjoy working with Gretchen. Meantime, I know your cover will help the kick starter campaign!
