Bookin' It...

So here is the newest book I illustrated!!!!! Woohoo! I only have one copy so far but hope to get copies for my family the end of the month to fulfill their Christmas coupons for the promised book.

The Adventures of Junk Food Dude. You can order it at www.greensmoothiegirl.com. http://www.greensmoothiegirl.com/books/pre-order-robyns-new-childrens-book/

Junk Food Dude is the little guy at the base of the tree eating a donut...if you weren't sure.
Here is a photo of the book standing up on my table. Just to show you it is a real book... ; )
Here is an inside spread. 40 illustrations in the book. Phew. A lot of work. But fun to do. I loved adding all the extra bits of color to the edges of the images. Now that is fun! And I love the roughness of the illustrations. For one thing it is an easy style to do and I like the look.
And here is another page. Showing JFD sitting at school. Feeling happier because he is becoming healthier.
Thought I would add in another book I did for a friend. This one didn't get published but he printed out one copy for me to have. It is a story about his daughters and son when they were little. Whobody. The credit for my work (my name) kind of got cut off at the bottom of the cover. Basically the same style I did for The Adventures of Junk Food Dude (above) but a little less rough.
Just a couple of page spreads of the story. The story is based on mysterious wet footprints all over the house and the sisters trying to figure out how it happened and who did it.
And the story ends with them finding their brother in the shower getting his feet wet and tromping through the house.
And another spread of the book.
So, there you go. Just bookin' it a little lately...

Now to get working on a drawing of a friend's daughter's two dogs...

WooHoo!! Congratulations! I'll be anxious to see if a copy of "The Adventures of JFD" makes it out to my library in the midwest! I'll watch for it and I'll be sure to let you know if it does. :)
