Today’s the day I finally get to start talking about my new picture books in earnest! I get to tell you that the books are available for pre-sale, and I get to give you a peek behind the scenes to show you how the books were created through a combination of needle felting, scale model set and prop making, and photography:
Great Job, Mom! ~ cover shoot
Great Job, Dad! ~ location shoot at Deas Island in Delta, British Columbia
Great Job, Dad! ~ outdoor shoot in my own backyard!
Great Job, Mom! ~ working in the back alley
Great Job, Mom! ~ studio set-up for the late night dance party!
Come back to the blog again in the coming months to find out more about my new titles as they wind their way to pub date and beyond!
