Coming Soon! We’ll be releasing our small collection of “The Fox and The Crow,” with Aesop tales hand-illustrated by the Mesquite Tree Studio. We’ll be running a promotion that will encourage you to buy your copy on a specific day over at the big online book distributor. When you are one of the first X numbers of people to do so on the day we tell you, we’ll be sending you (postal mail!) a three-piece poster set that’s ready to go up on a teacher’s bulletin board or maybe even framing for your home or office. PLUS every person who orders gets free middle-grades lesson plans created to match the posters. Here’s a sneak peek at the first in the series, which will not contain the watermark you see here. Keep your eyes open!
We’ll be at the Mesa Book Festival on December 9th! We hope you’ll stop by our booth.
We’re pleased to tell you that the Fox and Crow book is back on track after a few big ol’ bumps in the road. We anticipate a late-summer release. In order to create the image for “The Donkey Who Wanted to Be a Lion,” Michelle had to create a clay sculpture or a “maquette” (learn about that at Wikipedia) of the image that reflected back from the water of the lake. Here’s an up-close image of the face of the lion.
We had a great time out in Youngtown, Arizona for their “Art in the Park” festival. Great to speak to so many people, pass out some bookmarks, make a few sales. Fun, casual. Thanks for stopping by.
We’re pleased and grateful for the front-page article from the West Valley View in Avondale, Arizona. There are a two great pictures and a good article that talks a bit more about the philosophy of the author and illustrator. Thank you to the WVV team who put this together. Above is a picture of Michelle Buvala, the illustrator for Apples for the Princess (Amazon Link) book. Taken at the “Art is Alive” festival in Goodyear, Arizona.
