EdwardianTaylor_Pierre_MauriceSendak_NovPicBookMonth

When I was a little, I remember watching the “Really Rosie” animation tv special which had stories by Maurice Sendak and songs sung by Carol King. I loved it so much that I sought other books by Maurice Sendak in the library. One of Maurice’s books in particular has always been a favorite of mine, which was “Pierre A Cautionary Tale in Five Chapters and Prologue”. So I chose the moment where Pierre puts himself in the Lion’s mouth to eat him. This was for my agents for November Picture Book Month.

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

This weeks Colour Collective was Sweet Potato. I’ve had a story that I’ve been trying to figure out concerning a little pumpkin patch kid. He has no friends because hes different from all the other kids in school, so he decides to build himself one. But it will not be an easy task.

This weeks Colour Collective was Plaster Pink. Another strange dream I had was one about flamingo/vulture hybrid that attacks as a flock and when they run they create a cloud the makes them look like they’re one single creature. So this illustration was based off these strange and funny looking creatures. lol
