Fun Little Books – Update

(Trinity College Library in Dublin, Ireland)

It’s about time time for an update.  I’ve had a few people ask about when my new book would be coming out.  The 5th Fun Little Book is…was nearly finished.  But, a few things happened.
First off, as I was nearing the finish line with that book I had a lot of new work come in with my 9-5 job.  If you don’t know, I mainly work as a storyboard artist.  I do work in film, television, advertising, animation, etc.  The new work was a good thing, but it did put my new children’s book on the back burner.
After the new work was finished, I moved on to my teaching stint at the International Music Camp where I taught cartooning.  I know, music camp and cartooning class?  They have some art classes available at the camp as well.  It was a blast by the way!
I had a few other jobs that came in when I got back.  When all of that was finished I came back to my book with fresh eyes.  And…  I didn’t like how it looked.  So, like my last book Helping Hands, I’m reworking it.  I mean, I could just go ahead and finish the little edits and have a 5th book, but I feel like it could be better.  It too bad because this would be a great book to have out for Halloween as it’s monster themed!  It’s a bummer, but I know it will be worth it.
Other than that, I’m nearly finished with my cactus post.  That should be out this week.  I just really loved those cacti that I photographed at the Peace Garden and I’m looking forward to sharing those images.  I also have a few new Fun Little Facts that should be out soon as well.  I hope to have more regular posts available now that things aren’t quite so hectic.
More to come.  Stay tuned!  And keep reading!
