I have just started soliciting talented (and I mean TALENTED) artists from my local community and from around the world to join me on a collaborative book adventure. Here are my first three artists. I promise, just one visit to their shops and you will see why I chose them!
The Analogous Project artists will choose one from the collection of short "poems" (think Edward Gorey and Shel Silverstein) I have written and create an image (or allow the use of their existing image) to tell the story of the little rhyme.
Introducing the first three artists:
Evan B. Harris "Helm and the Harpsichord" Shop link:http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6588568
Kelly Louise Judd "Two Canaries Original Oil Painting" Shop link:http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5170357
Lisa Hurwitz "Mother and Son" Shop link: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5173417
More coming soon!

One of my absolute favorite artists in the world has died. I went to her site because I am ready to solicit artists for my completed series of children's books and of course I thought of her... her work inspired my own "Peculiar Girl" and "Peculiar Boy" drawings. I imagined her talent bringing my books to life and children everywhere losing themselves in her artwork. I am devastated.
Here is the excerpt from her Etsy shop:
