Thesis Development Update #1

Hi all!

I am working on my thesis this summer, which is developing, writing, and illustrating my own children's book. I am posting the illustrations on my blog so that visitors, family, and other artists/friends can post anonymous (or not anonymous) comments on the illustrations.

The book is about artists Todd Ramquist and Kiaralinda, who I wrote about here.

As some of you may know, people tend to be picky about their own work/craftsmanship. I am one of those people. I am curious to see if my own criticisms of the work are evident to others. So please, be brutally honest and let the anonymity of the internet shield your identity.

These are two that I finished recently:

This will be the first page of the book. It will be on the left.

The second page of the book, adjacent to the one above. It will be on the right.
Some of the borders will be clipped since these paintings are on paper that is larger than the final size. If the text looks too crammed in the second image, it is because it fits within the parameters of the book.

Please leave a comment and let me know how I might improve these images! Thank you in advance!

  1. I think they look really cool! "create" on the first page was a little hard for me to read until I enlarged the image. Everything else was easy to read from the smaller preview.
