I just finished a bunch of new blank journals. Some have a hard cover with exposed spine and others have soft wrap-around covers. I am taking most of these shown to the Focus on Book Arts conference in Oregon this week, where I’ll have them for sale in the artist shop.
The newest children’s book that I illustrated is just about ready to head to print and should (fingers crossed) be ready for the Sequim Lavender Festival. Here is the cover of this book. It was a lot of fun to do the illustrations in this book.
I just finished painting a bunch of fabric to use to make into book covers. The next step is to get these cut out and start the process of making the journals. I’ll keep you posted.
Today I received the actual books “When Crickets Snore”. I’m very happy with them and hope children and others will enjoy it. I will have them for sale at the Sequim Farmer’s Market this coming Saturday. Please come by and check it out.
Here is the cover for the children’s book that I illustrated called “When Crickets Snore”. It is getting close to print and I hope to have them by the Sequim Lavender Festival in mid-July.
I turned in the illustrations for a new children’s book yesterday that will be called “When Crickets Snore” by Gene Bradbury. This is my first collaboration on a children’s book and I’m pretty excited. If all goes well I’ll have some for sale at the Sequim Lavender Festival July 15-17th.
I am so happy that Olympic Stationers in Port Angeles is now carrying some of my journals.
I have now taken Bookbinding 1 and 2 and they are great classes for learning the basics of classic bookmaking. Here are the 2 books we made during the last class. It is amazing the details involved in making these books.
