Box Lunch Promotion

My rep, Three in a Box, has an editorial and book publishing promotion coming out called The Box Lunch. The theme of the promo is "duality." For my spread I decided to focus on parallel universes, and put it in the context of a children's book.

I would love to do more children's books. The last one I did was in 2006 for Scholastic. It was about the carousel in North Bay and how the whole town came together to create this gorgeous hand-carved carousel. It was really labor intensive, but so much fun.

I frequently drop by the children's book section of Chapters. There are so many inspiring books there. My favorite at the moment is a wordless picture book called Flotsam byDavid Wiesner. The imagination and creativity that went into the creation of the illustrations and story is just mind blowing.

If this YA book of mine ever happens, you're first of my list for a cover artist. (Though, to be honest, I don't know how much input I'll have.)

Hey thanks Evan, I'd love to work on it, if allowed. Gotta get cracking on Tyrone's Tyne cover too.

I'll keep my eye out for your books at my new workplace, children's dept in the Mississauga Library.
