The Itsy Bitsy Spider opening spread.
I have been contracted to illustrate a children's musical board book for Ideals Publishing.
This is my second book for them. We are putting our spin on the "story" of the song.
I have had an idea for a picture book of the "real life" of the Itsy Bitsy Spider for several years.
I got the chance to work a couple of ideas intto this book.
If I can find the time and talent to write the story the way I want, I'll someday illustrate the story the way I want to.
Until then getting to illustrate him for Ideals is a good scratch to the itch.
I even managed to get one of my Friends/clients into the art as the Father spider you see above.
