Time for School!

July 11th, 2017 | 2 Comments

Today is the “book birthday” for the 2nd picture book in the Tinyville Town series. This one is called “Time for School” and it follows our hero, Ellie Emberley, as she begins her first day at Tinyville Town Elementary.

The name “Ellie” came from my daughter, Elliot, and “Emberley” from one of my first favorite illustrators, Ed Emberley. Mainly, I like the alliteration of the names, and it’s fun to say while reading aloud.

I also made another time-lapse video of the drawing of the cover art. I hope you like watching this stuff as much as I like making it. Buy it on Indiebound here!

    Could you do a blog post tomorrow about your work on Frank Einstein Book 6 illustrations?

      I can’t. There aren’t any illustrations for that book yet. I just got the script today! Stay tuned though!
