Oh gosh, it has been a while, hasn’t it?
Well, while I’ve been busy with studying realistic portraiture, writing for my short story project Clue Writing, producing radio plays, work and generally being a unbearable wisearse … an idea has snuck up on me like a deadly turtle.
Since I am a writer that spends a lot of time on the drawing board and loves to debate about difficult subjects, why not make a children’s book that tackles exactly those issues in a secular way? Considering that I am without child and very happy about that, this might be an odd choice but I hope to contribute to parents lifes as well as their childrens.
Without saying too much: I’m currently working with experts on child psychology and the issues I’d like to explain in a child-friendly manner. Simultaneously I’m learning how to translate everything I know about realistic drawing into cartooning.
You, my dear fellow drawlings, are about to see what hopefully is my evolution from a crappy cartoonist to a decent one. Wish me luck, stamina and if you have any resources, feedback, questions or critiques to help me learn, I’d very much appreciate your kind help – thank you.
Have an awesometacular day in the Milky Way
