Book launch reminder – join us tomorrow night!

Dan and I are dusting off our launch hats; he’s readying his reading voice, and we’re both quelling jitters for our Dream Boats launch tomorrow night.
There will be some paper boats, refreshments, a Q&A, and reading. And Dan and I with our autograph pens. However, Dan has been clear there will be no pony rides, reindeer, bears, or llamas, so do not expect to find any of those sharing the stage with us tomorrow night, except for on the pages of our very-ready-to-launch book. Probably for the best – I know for a fact Christianne likes to keep the Lyceum floor clean, and reindeer are hard to come by at this time of year.

It all goes down on Thursday, June 13, 2013 at 7:00 pm at Christianne’s Lyceum of Literature and Art, 3696 West 8th Avenue, Vancouver. (Corner of Alma & 8th)

A bit more of a look at what’s between the covers…



This post is part of a series documenting my process of illustrating the picture book Dream Boats (author Dan Bar-el, pub. Simply Read Books). The entire series of posts is archived here.

View a gallery of all the work-in-progress images including first sketches, reference material, mistakes, redraws, and tests, to final art at a much larger size, here.
