Kids Book..

Hey everyone, well it's time for a new update and we thought we'd post a few piccys from a kids book we've just finished. Creating kids books is something we've always wanted to get into, and we've got no shortage of our own ideas, but, honestly, illustrating this book has been quite a trying experience.

Hey remember when no-one wanted to publish Harry Potter. I seem to remember Disney turned down the option of publishing rights to it in the US. (Just before they dropped the ball with LoTR.) Don't give up, looks like a great book. Have you tried overseas publishers as opposed to narrow minded local ones.

We've tried a few bro, with alot of them, especially in the states, I think you need an agent or something!

This book is, thank f**k, not a story we came up with, we just got contracted to add a little crazy cartoony type flavour to it!!

If anyone can give us advice on publishing, we'd be mucho grateful!!

Groovy designs and paintings. I love the cats -- they're hilarious.

go to www.lulu.com it't the cafe press of book printing. The only thing you have to worry about is marketing and getting major stores to carry it. A lot of people also use it for printing up sketchbooks. Great book illustrations tho. keep it up!

Demais as suas ilustrações! Vejo que você tem excelentes trabalhos! Acho fantástico que tem o dom para a animação de desenhos, é o meu sonho saber animar um personagem, infelizmente eu só sei desenhar e mais nada! Parabéns pelo trabalho admirável! Congratulations!!!

I heard an agent helps. I also heard a funny story about how you have to lie your ass off to get one unless you already have a deal lined up. Tough stuff...don't give up. Looks good!

Congratulations! Not only de characters are nicely designed, but the editorial desing and the paletes are superb too! I only lament books like this weren't published when I was a kid.
