So here's how the idea for this book started: Confession - This isn't my first book-for-a-charity attempt. I was working on another book I wanted to do for charity (I'll eventually go back to it) and was trying to figure out what charity I wanted to support. (Below is a bad photo of one of the pages. That book is for another time; another blog. But I WILL finish it!)
I quickly texted my buddy and first illustrator on my list, JP Coovert with the idea to get his thoughts since he's kinda in the biz. He liked it and was down to do help. He'll play a bigger role eventually but I'll ruin a surprise right now and let you know that's not the route I'm taking. He suggested that I illustrate the whole thing for two reasons - 1) He liked my style and, more importantly, 2) we both agreed that all of the different illustration styles would distract from the story.
That's too many words in a row so that's where I'll leave you for now. Till next time! Oh yeah, you can check JP's stuff here: http://www.jpcoovert.com/
