IF Sugary




This is my submission to Illustration Friday this week. I'm finally getting to share some of the artwork from my most recent children's book! This is the opening double page spread. The book is called Butterfly Kisses for Grandpa and Grandma. The author of the book is Alayne Kay Christian. Its a really sweet story that is perfect for grandparents and grandkids, especially those that have to deal with living far away. In this opening spread, the main character is enjoying some ice cream at grandpa and grandmas. One of the reasons she likes to come to see grandpa and grandma is all of the SUGARY sweets she gets to eat:-)



The book is not yet released, but can be pre-ordered at the publishers website, www.bluewhalepress.com. I hope you enjoy this spread, I'll be posting a lot of Butterfly Kisses in the next few weeks!

The mess candy leaves on a kids face is a nice touch. Love the illustration.

This will be a delightful book, Joni! All the very best wishes to you on this HUGE success! I think you captured the joy of this child and I know that the grandparents in this story will be wonderfully portrayed.
