There is never enough busy scenes children’s books in the world! At least that’s what I think. And therefore, I decided to climb into my studio for a few months once again to work on a new book from the series Podme objavovat (Let’s Explore). To be honest I really had a slow start (as I always do when starting a new book project. And the bigger the project, the slower the start.) But as the images started to unwind in my head, everything fell into place and I hope this one will come into the light in a few months. Some of the illustrations are already in color - here is a tiny sneak peek!
Those of you who have been waiting for your copies of the Podme objavovat Slovensko book - we’ve got good news! We’ve have shipped most of the boxes last night and there is only a few of them left waiting to be shipped today. Most of you (the best supporters in the world) should have all your goodies by the end of this week. Then, the book is off to the bookstores! Thank you everyone for your support during the crowdfunding campaign! The book is here thanks to you!
A box of advance copies of the Podme objavovat Slovensko book got in today. They look so neat! Can’t wait for the rest of the books to arrive so I can start sending them out to all of the supporters who donated it money to fund the printing of the book. Thank you guys, I promise to keep you up to date and to handle all the shipping as fast as I can. If you still would like to pre-order your copy, you can do that here: https://www.startlab.sk/projekty/580-podme-objavovat-slovensko-ilustrovana-kniha-pre-deti/
Nestáva sa mi často, že by som mala problém s písomným prejavom, ale dnes som úplne bez slov. Naša startlab kampaň dosiahla 100% za menej ako 24 hodín, ste super! Pokračujeme ďalej, nech je knižiek medzi vami a vašimi malkáčmi čo najviac! ĎAKUJEME!!!
I am so excited about this book I don't even know where to begin! This is going to be such a wonderful and colorful collection of my childhood memories, I can't wait to send it off to printers and have it published. I have finally decided to go ahead and try to get on the path of self publishing. By far, I have no clue what it will bring and how will I be able to cope with all the issues it may bring. But it makes me really happy to create it and I will be keeping my fingers crossed for the book to make others (well especially the little ones) at least equally happy! Will try to post the updates more often the following weeks!
I kept a little quite lately, but I really had a good reason - I started working on a project that I have been keeping in my mind for a looong while. To be honest I haven't felt so happy working on a book for quite some time - I get up every morning rushing to my studio and sit there coloring these spreads until late night. I can't show you more, but it is a dream job to me and I really hope it shows!
So much for me and my “enormous” talent for drawing horses - here Maria, why don’t you try a whole Horses and Ponies activity book and see how that goes! Tiny sneak peek of one of my most recent projects, soon to be published by Usborne. Can’t wait!
