This little piggy is almost here! The fourth ITS NOT fairytale book, written by Josh Funk and illustrated by myself premieres November 1st, 2022. So be sure to get your copy online or at your local bookstore.
In this book, we’re not introduced to three, but four piglets. The fourth fights for control of her siblings’ fates against the narrator. Who will win? What happens with their houses? Who wants to be a pumpkin? All will be revealed in this book!
The 🐷🐷🐷 are out of the bag! It was announced this week @joshfunkbooks and my fourth book together “It’s Not The Three Little Pigs”. These three have made appearances in the previous three “It’s Not” books. So I’m excited for you all to get to meet these silly characters (and others, ahem.). So keep an eye out for further announcements! It’ll be out Fall 2022!
Glad to be back at doing the weekly prompts for Animal Alphabets. This round we have been focusing on Monsters from movies or books. So A was Audrey II from the “Little Shop of Horrors”, B is for “Babadook”, C for “Creature from the Black Lagoon”, D for Demogorgon from “Stranger Things”, E for “Edward Scissorhands”, and F for “The Fly”.
“It’s Not Jack and the Beanstalk” is out now!!! Written by Josh Funk and illustrated by yours truly. One of my favorite spreads from the book was the title page. I wanted to establish right from the beginning Jack and Bessie’s friendship and to show them in a moment together before the story began. If you look really closely, you can see the silhouette of the Giant’s castle in the cloud shadows created by the moonlight. Also, there is a hidden fairy tale character in this spread. Probably the hardest one to find.
If you have not already purchased “It’s Not Jack and the Beanstalk”, its available now at your local bookstore. Or you can purchase it on Amazon at this link http://a.co/fFFuB3d
And because “It’s Not Jack and the Beanstalk” was so well received before it debut . . .
This weeks Colour Collective was Blue Bell. Decided to explore one of my favorite childhood stories of “The Three Billy Goats Gruff.” I still remember in kindergarten we had our big school play. One of the stories was the 3BGG. I really wanted to be one of the goats. I did so well in the auditions, I got the lead roll in another play as the Gingerbread Boy. Still to this day, I remember how much I wanted to be a goat lol
