Hi all! It’s me again, and I am here to admit to a mistake. That’s right, I too make mistakes. You see, throughout the handful of posts mentioning Marshall The Miracle Dog, from my process to finally being done, the one thing I never really did was explain what the book is actually about. Silly me. Continue reading
While majoring in the art and design world back in college I was no stranger to lengthy projects. I mean, sometimes we would even spend a whole month on something. A month! I’d say the longest time I spent on a project was designing and painting a set for KU’s theater department, but even that is dwarfed by what I spent the majority of the last year doing (I didn’t quite make it to 9 months on this baby, but I can’t complain about delivering a couple weeks early).

That’s right, Marshall already has his own Facebook page, and if the first week is any indication, it’s not going to take long for my level of jealousy to hit a high based on the number of fans he already has.

Hello Internet Perusers,
For the past few months I have been working on the illustrations for a children’s book coming out about a special little dog (ok, medium sized dog) named Marshall who didn’t have the best life in the beginning. Don’t you worry though, he’s living the happy life now that all puppies (and animals on the whole) deserve. The book uses his story of hardship to recovery as its inspiration, and you will all be missing out if you don’t give it a gander when it’s finished. Technically you should do more than give it a gander to help support it, but I won’t start with the nagging quite yet.
So who wants to know what my part of the book making process has entailed so far? [Turns on cheer track]. Oh goodness guys, you’re making me blush… I’ll try not to get too boring in my explanations so you don’t regret those prerecorded cheers, but this has been quite the learning process for me so far, so why not share it?
