Kids Books: DONE and DONE!!!

Finally!!!!! Wow, That really took a while eh? almost 7 weeks of non stop work! But here they are... my two babies. (Twins, but not identical)

MY job is done, now I hand it over to a graphic designer (for the text layout) and then off to production. About 3 weeks till I see /hold the books.

Below, I've attached some samples from the book. The text is just DUMMY/temporary. They're quite different in colouring style, but over all the same feel. I experimented with both styles to be honest. I like how they came out...can't wait to see them printed!

Anyways.... Phew! Now I relax! :D

Dudeee! congrats! Finally! You really did a great job. You had such short time to create all of this amazing pieces! I loved to watch the progress of each piece, and like I told you before, I think that this two books are amongst your greates works so far. You've really grown as an artist and i believe that you learned a lot during this creative process.

You know that I'm a sucker for textures and that i love details, so to me, the 2nd book is like your masterpiece. I really like the simple style in the first book too, but i just loveeeeee the 2nd book more! like...in a can't stop starring at it kind of way. lol!

Best of luck with the books dude, and all the success in the world! May these babies bring you many good things!
