Imaginary Friends!

Monday, April 6, 2009



...Some character sketches for the imaginary friends starring in my upcoming picture book, DOTTY, by Erica Perl, published by Abrams...more to come soon. I'm working on the child-drawn concept for the book, which required me to mentally tune out any art training, take a seat at the pasty craft table in nursery school, and get back to basics. Drawings done in Prismacolor Lead Stix on cream paper by my inner 4 year old.

Happy rainy little Monday ♥

Color me curious, Julia. Will the book show the drawer as well as the drawings (which I like very much)? How are you doing it? Or are you at liberty to say? Your readers want to know.

Thanks Vanessa and Amanda.These were fun to do.

Brian, good question! Well I'm still solidifying the concept, but yes you will be able to see the human characters and "real" world around the imaginary friends.
