I just got done working on a very fun and cool project. I actually got to use my design education, and I got to be part of something that I think is pretty dang cool. It's a book of children's poetry:



If you liked Shel Silverstein or Jack Prelutsky's New Kid On The Block, you may want to check this out as the styles are similar. I didn't do any of the writing or illustrations, but since Brad knew nothing about how to create a PDF or how to turn his idea into an actual book, I offered tech services, essentially. Spelling, grammar, and punctuation corrected, all his scanned drawings processed and made print-ready, author photo (of course), and dust jacket layout. He actually did the book layout himself, and we collaborated on the cover design, but he was going to do a simpler cover and I convinced him to let me finagle wrapping his cityscape around the entire jacket.

I've ordered a copy for myself, but it'll be 2-3 weeks before it gets here. I can't wait to see what it looks like! (Oh, and if anyone does happen to find themselves wanting to order one, use the discount code "LULUBOOK" to save 10% before September 30th.)
