It Started With A Blank Piece Of Paper
The Making Of a Children's Picture Book
I chose to create a children’s picture book in which I could capture the playfulness, simplicity and curiosity present in childhood. I sought to have pictures that are enjoyable to look at, yet open enough for interpretation in order to have a reader put the narrative into their own words. Entitled, How to Fly…with a Cape, the book follows the adventures of a curious, cape-wearing piece of paper through a world of new experiences. It is my hope that I can share some of the joy and comfort that picture books can bring to readers of all ages. Please feel free to sit and read.
