Children's Book Class at SVA

Since January I've been taking a children's book class at the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York City.  It is a great class taught by Monica Wellington.

I've been learning so much about the children's book industry and wanted to share my projects and process.

For our first assignment I decided to have my story take place in the American Southwest with Armadillo wanting to make some nachos.

For the next assignment our focus was on character.  I chose a Hawaiian sea turtle named Kauila.

Our next set of assignments is to work on a book dummy!  I already have my idea set in place and cannot wait to get started.  I'll be posting my progress here so check back soon!
