Creative Literacy Project


"Lazy Black Cat" 9x12"

Last winter, I collaborated with my friend Debra to come up with a childrens book through my publisher. She came up with the theme line, and I developed the illustrations for it. She named it "The Adventures of Fat Black Cat". It is now offered up on the net through a wonderful organization called Creative Literacy Project. What is so special about this project? A child is guided through the process of authoring their own book using the themed and illustrated books that are designed to encourage literacy. A child can select one of the books, dedicate their book, write their own story throughout the pages, and have their author's profile displayed in his or her own book, and then have it published! Take a look!

The illustrations were developed with suggestions by Debra and created in pastels measuring 9 x 12". The framed originals now hang in my own children's rooms.
