new book beginnings ~ db


We’ve launched!

Wow! Thank you to everyone one who came to the launch last night, asked me great questions, and helped buy out the Lyceum’s entire stock of Dream Boats books. And thank you to everyone one who is patently waiting for the book you ordered to get to you – Dan and I will sign them as soon as we get them! And thank you to all the little kids who came, and folded paper boats, and helped launch the book with us. 

And also, a big thank you to the Lyceum staff who put on yet another wonderful event complete with food, drink, and a paper boat folding station! We are fortunate to have such a champion of children’s literature in our neighbourhood.

And also to my publisher, Simply Read Books, who let me get creative with this book.




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.
