ART EXCHANGE

11.17.13

Over the past few months I’ve been having an art exchange with a fellow artist, Ben. This is definitely to be continued…

Here’s the first drawing Ben did that started this art exchange. It’s a self-portrait of Ben reading THE THREE TRICERATOPS TUFF!

Here’s a close-up.

Ben’s mom sent me the photo in email. Here’s my response. It’s a drawing of me holding my phone looking at Ben’s art.

This is Ben’s response. It’s a drawing of Ben’s computer with my image of me looking at Ben’s art on my phone.

And here is Ben showing both pieces of art!

Ben decided to send me a letter with more art enclosed. Here he is mailing it.

It reads:
ARTISTIC EXPLANATION:
His hands are going this way, “VOOOOP,” because that means he wants to move…
And his head is going this way, “VLOOOOOP,” because that means he wants to move to where Steve Shaskan lives.

And here we all are living where where I live: Minneapolis!

32 PAGE PICTURE BOOK DUMMY TEMPLATE

11.15.13

Here’s a template for a 32 page picture book. There are always exceptions to the rule.

Dummy

Here’s a template for a 32 page picture book with paste down pages and full color end papers. A few less pages to work with but you gain cool end papers.
