My Treehouse – Page 9

Here’s page 9 from My Treehouse, a short graded reader I recently illustrated for Learning A-Z.  The girl really has a remarkable view from the deck of her treehouse.  If you look close, you’ll see a road with two bridges.  One over a river and another over railway tracks.  There’s traffic on the road.  The distant fields have trees along the fencelines and there are cows in a field closer in.

My Treehouse – Cover Spread

Well, I’ve been super busy lately.  When that happens, nothing gets posted on the website at all.  But today I’ve got a bit of a breather while I wait on feedback from a client, so I’m setting up some posts.

I illustrated a short graded reader for Learning A-Z titled My Treehouse.  Here’s the spread for the wrapped cover on that one.  The first page is the same image, but a cropped version showing just the right-hand side of this scene.

Promo Postcards

I got my newest promo postcards from VistaPrint just now.

It’s a girl-themed card this time.  I used the new Girls in a Treehouse image on the color side and the one with Sarah and Katie with the bike and skateboard on the back side.  You might notice that I recolored the “No Boys Allowed” sign so that it didn’t distract from the overlaid text.  You probably didn’t notice (because it’s not important) but I moved the bird too.  The image wasn’t exactly the same dimensions as the card, so I had to cut off a little at the sides.  So, I nudged the bird over a bit so it wouldn’t be too close to the edge.  Working with digital images makes last-minute changes so much easier!

Now, I really need to get moving on my promo mailing list.  I’m in the process of transferring my notecard-based system into a computer-based one.  I have to type everything in new, which is time consuming now but should pay off later.

Anyone want one of these postcards?  Contact me with your name and address and I’ll mail you one.
