New Book

Here is a sneak peek at my new book in the "If I could be..." Series. This is the female companion volume to the boy edition that is now on sale in my Etsy store.

The angel turned out decent enough, but I put about every color in the rainbow in the fairy pic. Man I'm so color retarded. I need serious help with color. If it's there, I use it. Green grass, blue sky, etc, etc. I have a hard time dulling down my colors. It's seems everything I do is retina burning. Anyone have any suggestions? Does anyone even read this thing?

Anyways, enjoy.

I do.... haha however I am not a big help in the art department. I am a bit lame when it comes to these things. Sorry. However I do enjoy your work! :)

I think kids like things that a burn their retinas. Children's television shows often make me a little nauseous when I watch them because of the color palettes. ;)

As for your "target demographic"-- I would imagine that you've done a lot more looking into the matter than I have, but I feel that as a child, I would have totally sprung for the boy-themed book. Once you have both of these books done and find a proper non-Jewelry venue to sell them at (That's ROUGH!), it'll be interesting to see what kind of cross-over you have.

Likely, if there is any crossover, it'd be girls preferring the boy-themed book rather than the other way around. But you never know! Kids are interesting.
