Splat Story Up!

Over the summer I had a great opportunity through Kidzsmart to illustrate an online story by Diary of a Wimpy Kid author Jeff Kinney! It was a great project and I'm super proud of it. Check it out!

Here are my initial characters and my mood/style board. It's a story from Jeff's childhood so I had a good time researching the styles and colours of the early 80's (Let's be clear: I LIVED through that era so it wasn't a huge stretch to research...)

It was a great project and in the first 2 days got over 20,000 views. Book It is a great program to promote literacy and reading in the US.
