Where the Tomorrows Go

So I haven't been able to really talk about it much until now! It was that big illustration project that I have been working on for awhile....

Everyone knew that I drew pretty pictures and did crafty things and from my weekly posts on facebook/ blog. One day it finally went a little bit beyond someone just "liking" my art. A friend from high school had a friend that was looking for an illustrator for his second book. We were introduced and hit it off well. We talked about the project and what he was looking for and if I was up for the challenge. I always wanted to illustrate a book and this seemed like an opportunity to give it a try. It wasn't just any other children's book. It was special. 

In the last couple of weeks it finally came together and now it's available. Manoj, the author of the book says it best and you can check out this link here and get to know more about the book: To some it up in a few words it is a children's book about understanding and coping with loss. The story is about Bella and her pet dog Gogo. It's a very different subject matter, very real and honest yet uplifting ofcourse. Because let's face it life can be unpredictable and even more so when your a kid. I remember what it was like when I was a little and we had to put our dog to sleep. It was trying moment that your best friend wasn't going to be by your side anymore. During illustrating this book, as an adult once again had to put another dear furry friend to rest. It doesn't get easier with age but I definitely felt connected to Bella as she deals with her lost. I can go on but really check it out. You can buy the hard copy & e-book on Amazon: And on the itunes store.
