Hello there! I saw in my email this morning that we had a new follower on our tumblr, and when I took a look, I saw some of the wonderful illustrations you've been working on! Would love to know more about the children's book you've been working on, and what if any support I can offer as a fellow Bay Area children's book writer! Sincerely, David

Thanks so much for the message, I’m so excited about you and Eliza’s project (Eliza and I were roommates in college). I recently saw a book dummy and I’m so impressed.
Yes, I am embarking on a similar adventure myself, it’s in its very beginning stages, but I am excited at the prospect of delving into it more in the coming months. It is also about the moon! My vision is to have it be very minimal word-wise, with much of the story being driven by the imagery.
Good luck with the Kickstarter, I’m sure we will meet in person one of these days.
I resolved this year to write and illustrate a story. I have only an inkling of what that story might be, but as is always the case with me, I do have a sense of what it might look like. These illustrations are my first attempt at a stylistic example for this project. I showed them at a pop-up art show that I recently hosted, and I am showing them here to see what further feedback I can glean from the internet world. So please don’t be shy if you have comments!
Update/Response to timoshida: these are a sequence of images for one story :)
