I present to you the cover of my first fully-illustrated children's book, "I Looove You, Whale!" by Derrick Brown! It's published by Write Fuzzy, the children's division of Write Bloody Publishing, and can be purchased here.
I do not yet own a physical copy, but I cannot wait to see the inside and will be sure to share some photos. I hand-painted the illustration for the cover, but did strictly line drawings for the interior, which were digitally colored by an amazing designer named Josh Grieve. .
Josh sent me these a while back - these are the first two pages. They were my favorite to draw, and I'm madly in love with how he colored them. Everything has an antique-y, old-map type feel, which is exactly what I'd hoped for.
I hope you're all having a beautiful wintery week!
Lots of love,
