Animal alphabet book

A few years back, my wife's cousin was about to give birth to their first kid. And rather than come up with some mundane gift for them, on a spur of the moment decision we decided to make a book for them. We worked furiously through the night and day making the thing; I drew the pencil sketches, Marcy painted them, I inputed the paintings, did the graphic design, and had them printed so Marcy could hand stitch the book together for delivery.

From that one hand bound book, we saved the images and have since had it published for mass consumption. If you're interested in snagging one of these little books, feel free to go to my wife's Etsy store and spend a few of your hard earned nickels on a fun project we worked on a few years back.

That's the great thing about being an artist. You don't have to buy anything, you can just make gifts and be cheap. Er, not cheap...I mean meaningful, yeah that's it.

I just happened to land on your blog. I've enjoyed looking at your work. This is a wonderful personal gift for a child - something to cherish a long time. Thanks for sharing.
