Doodle 28...Play with Pigs

For the record, this is not actually a doodle, but one of (what will soon be) many illustrations for a children's book.  I hope I'm not breaking any publishing rules by showing it, but since this site gets all of 5 visitors a week, I'm probably ok.
My good friend Andy decided he wanted to write a children's book and he knew I was into the illustration business and so he approached me about doing the drawings.  If he were most other people I'd of said "I'm just too busy," but he's young and I don't want to be discouraging to him doing something worthwhile.  I am optimistic about the quality of the book, but I'm not unrealistic about the actual prospects of publishing and being a large commercial success.  Time will tell.  Thanks for checking in!

  1. Tyler, sounds like a fun venture. Just fyi, I've spent many years and hours researching the children's book publishing industry. If your friend is going to self publish that's one thing. However, if he wants to be published through an established publisher, they do not encourage or want the writer to provide their own illustrator. The publishers have their own. Now if he illustrates his own pictures, then they are more willing at least to look, but they do have illustrators in house that are there for that purpose. Hope this info is useful- good luck. Your illustrations are great- as always. Kim Z
