The Gift

January 31st, 2009

The GiftIn other news, I’v been working on a childrens book for a little while now, since October. The story will tell itself and I’ll let you take a look at it. There are few words to go along with it. I am trying to be as minimal as possible in that department. It is, essentially, about a girl looking for her soccer ball. If it is so simple why did the last two pages take a month (at least) to finish? Well, crazy beautiful landscape where said ball as vanished to, along with little girl, is like Echer meets Dali meets Seuss with plenty of Me thrown in there too. The pictures I’ve posted don’t quite do it justice. The pages with the itty-bitty details are so much more complex and beautiful in the flesh, er, canvas. But this will give you a good preview of what to come. The total book will be around 36 or 40 pages in length and maybe have 50 words all together. I hope to be finished by the summer time but, a project like this, it could be a while. Of course, if you would like to pay my rent so I can spend more time on this story, you are welcome to and can do so here: Donate. And if you happen to decide to offer more than a hundred dollars, I promise to paint you into the story. Hey, that’s not so bad is it? Well, in any case, I would love for you to take a look at it here: The Gift. Admittedly, all of the pages that are presented are not entirely finished yet. There will always be a bit of “going back” to touch up and change bits and pieces but I’m extremely happy with where it is going. I hope you are too. Donate
