For starters two books came out this month.
First one the AMAZING Going to Disneyland - A Guide for Kids & Kids at Heart by Shannon Willis Laskey.
Where do I begin on how amazing this book is... besides the fact that it is full of little facts and secrets about Disney and Disneyland. I couldn't put it down. The design is fun and creative, the facts are intriguing, and the featured artists' work is perfect! Here is a little list :
Mary Blair (of course)
Rolly Crump (incredible, as per usual)
W. Jason Weesner
And YOURS TRULY of course!
Here is a little peek of the book
Here are the two pieces I have featured in the book.
First the Neverland 3-D paper/watercolor piece I made
And this Pirates of The Caribbean watercolor I made specially for this book!
Rolly Crump even wrote a review for it... I mean c'mon!
"There aren't enough adjectives to describe this incredibly creative book, designed bu a fantastically creative artist. For starters, it's UNIQUE, IMAGINATIVE, WHIMSICAL, EDUCATIONAL, CHILDLIKE, THOUGHT PROVOKING, INTERESTING, DELIGHTFUL and obviously a labor of love. It's a wonderful 'memory' book for any and all that visit Disneyland. What more can I say - I LOVE IT!!!"

The Second book release this month has been the long awaited Tyler Loves Tape by Arlene Taylor. I have been working with Arlene on this book for the past year. It is an adorable story about the fun and adventures of a little octopus names Tyler and his preschool friends. This adventure is with tape and all the wonderful things they can create. It is so sweet an innocent, the perfect little book for our little imaginative ones!
Some more sneaky peeks!
Stay tuned for the next post of the 3-D paper/watercolor pieces I've been working on!
