    i want to make a children's book with all the dauchsands i have had to come up with..i had quite a dauchsand run there for awhile..and thought it would be so much fun to put them all together in one place :rolleyes:
    all i need is a...time..b....more time...c...to clone myself....and d...a publisher :D then i can do My art..in the meantime i am surrounded by 45 different rabbits frogs and cats :eek: this is one of the tiles i was going to donate to the auction..i will take it next year.
    When i do my "book" i will make them bigger...then i can get in there and do the detail to my satisfaction..this was just plain toooooo small..but fun for a study anyway.

    Ahhhh how cute. I think that's a great project. Have you ever thought about getting into illustrating? I bet it would be easy for you.

    Oh Smkie, they are fabulous. I LOVE them ! they look just like something a little kid would ogle and squeal over in a book! Have you tried the yellow pages? I mean...can't hurt to try right? I went online and did yellowpages.com and searched publishers and came up with a whole bunch of addresses...I don't know how to "properly" go about such things but a preliminary letter or a phone call, then a portfolio of all of your work and samples spacific to what you want to publish...again, all speculation on my part but it can't possibly be worse to try and find out that you're going about it the wrong way then to never try in the first place. I think your art is AWESOME and any publisher ought to see that from the get go.
