I’m pleased to announce the release of Stephanie Lisa Tara’s Turtle Book, illustrated by yours truly. This book serves as a companion to one of the most successful picture books I’ve been involved with, I’ll Follow the Moon.
The truth is, I’m a little immersed in my own books (Kendra Kandlestar!) these days, and don’t have a lot of time for extra illustration projects. But how could I turn down another project with Stephanie Lisa Tara? Our first book did such amazing things.
This book is non-fiction, full of “fotos, facts, and fun.” The book uses many of the original illustrations I did for I’ll Follow the Moon. In addition, I completed over a hundred new mini-illustrations to create a little flip-book of a turtle hatching from his egg and making his way to his mama in the ocean. You can see a sample of them in the corners of the pages:
In her own words, Stephanie Lisa Tara’s Turtle Book has a primary goal: SAVING SEA TURTLES FROM EXTINCTION. A portion of proceeds from this book go to charitable organizations like the Turtle Foundation. Stephanie also asks that you consider joining the 40,000+ fans on her facebook page, Save Green Sea Turtles.
Please check out the book! In the meantime, here are a few of my illustrations for the flip book portion (they are much more fun to look at when you are actually flipping through the book).
