Picture Book Marathon- Day 11

So I've been working on finishing a dummy book all day today. It's actually one I've been working on for years but never finished. Here's to finishing!

What's a dummy book? It's essentially a "fake" picture book. A mock up. I don't have a cover for you but I will show a sketch. Hopefully I can finish up the dummy and start on the real thing soon. I think I might make this one into an iPhone/iPad app book...and an ebook.


  1. Hey, I think I recognize this! Is it the doggy book?

    Way to be a finisher!

  2. yes, same book, tweaked illustrations here and there and finally finishing them. Hopefully I can then take the sketches to actual finishes.
