Someone told me about a picture book that their brother had written and was getting published. All I knew about it was that it was about a kid who didn't like one of his stuffed animals. I thought it was an intriguing idea and immediately began thinking about what was "wrong" with the stuffed animal. Anyways, one post-it sketch lead to a scanner, which then lead to photoshop and before I knew it I had started putting time into something that had nothing to do with me. But it was fun to experiment with something that I wasn't close to. It was also very freeing knowing that it didn't matter if I had gotten it wrong.

I'd like to work more like this. Sometimes I have too vivid an idea in my head and become immobilized when it doesn't come out right.

Anyways, I don't consider these my best work. But they were fun and I actually learned a few things while making it, so why not show it?
