Day 5: A LITTLE GIRL IN THE LAND OF THE HICCUPS

IMG_2559[1]IMG_E2562[1]Day 5 of #scrypthalloween looks at my first children’s book A LITTLE GIRL IN THE LAND OF THE HICCUPS. Some facts: 1) It was published on Aug 29, 2016. 2) the watercolor art throughout the book is done by @dpipito @pintsizedpages 3) I wrote the book for my daughter when she was hiccuping often in the womb. 4) My desire was to create a world like the L Frank Baum’s Oz or Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland 5) The Hiccup creatures were designed by Dan based on what I needed, so the description of them wasn’t written until after the final art submission. #childrensbooks #illustration #authorsofinstagram #oz #wonderland #hiccups #girlpower

Animals of Wonderland: #2 The Caterpillar

My daughter painted another in her Animals of Wonderland series.  The Caterpillar was her focus this time, and she included her initials “LRP” in the hookah smoke.  We are working on scanning these all into prints to sell in the near future, so stay tuned as they’ll make great little additions to your wall.

My daughter, Lana, returns with her latest painting.  This is part 1 of her “Animals of Wonderland” series.  Here’s her version of the Cheshire Cat and Breadandbutterfly.

Not bad for a ten year old.


On the 11th Day of Christmas…

Oz-Wonderland-WarON THE ELEVENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME… 11 hic-hic-hiccups…

10 time travelers, 9 Aliens, 8 conspiracies, 7 super heroes, 6 corrupt files, 5 Demon Spawns! 4 lost souls, 3 werewolves, 2 vampires, and zombies in a story.

I’m secure enough to admit that I really enjoy the classic fairy tales.  Disney did a great job of bringing family friendly versions of them to life, and whether dark or happy, the stories are timeless.  When my daughter was born I wrote a children’s book for her called A LITTLE GIRL IN THE LAND OF THE HICCUPS.  I was heavily inspired by things like Baum’s Oz stories and Carroll’s Wonderland.  After finding success with my first children’s book I went back and began rereading some of the ones that inspired me and they are still enjoyable to this day.  Depicted here is a rare find called the OZ/Wonderland War.  It was a 4 issue mini-series that places both realms in the same reality, and although a little goofy is an enjoyable comic if just to see the characters unite and interact.  What is your favorite fairy tale type story?
