Again...boy and creature..
First of all, I would like to thank everyone who has stopped by my little blog. Your kind words are incredibly encouraging. I thank you all.

This idea has been bouncing around in my head for almost 2 years now. I've posted a few different sketches which surrounds my story. I guess since I'm an animator and not a writer, I feel more comfortable "boarding" it instead of writing. I have pages and pages of thumbnails, story sketches and quick notes which helps me with character development, design as well as story. I really hopes it comes together....only time will tell.

I have written and sketched my first children's book. It's in the process of being rejected. (haha)

Anyhoo, I belong to SCBWI. They are a great help.

The great Disney storyboard artist Bill Peet (published tons of books) started his books by boarding out the story first, and added the words later. I'm not sure he did this for all of his books, but I'm sure he did it for his first few.

Nice work. I look forward to seeing more from A Boy and His Creature.
