Book Birthday! ORANGUTANKA: A Story in Poems


It's here! ORANGUTANKA is released into the wild today! 

As we often hear from authors and illustrators, it takes years to finally see your book in print. If you can believe it, I delivered my first pass at color illustrations in November of 2013! Here is a fun glimpse at what a page from this book looks like before and after it's finished:




If you'd like to see more of the process that goes into making this book and many others (and you happen to live near Cape Cod, MA!) please visit the Cotuit Center for the Arts for The Process of Picture Books, a show curated by author/illustrator Jim Hill


For even more ORANGUTANKA fun, please check out the Nerdy Book Club Trifecta posts with myself and Margarita!

*While you're there, make sure to watch the trailer!

Buy the book:


Cheers!
