We’ve been playing with bits and pieces of artwork from the book as it makes it way through the publishing process.

Here are the new bookmarks for this collection. Folks in our workshops are already getting these. 🙂

The art in this book is art that exists tangibly in the real world, just like in this book, too. By that we mean that the pictures you will see in the book are hand-created with cut paper, watercolor and acrylic. They exist outside of a computer. Here’s a tiny teaser video where Michelle works on the early stages of the lion for “The Lion and the Mouse” fable. Note: this isn’t the final version of the lion ;-).
