Initial Sketches

Even though the time between signed contract and release of a picture book can be quite long (2+ years), one of the fun things that happens in between is getting to see the illustrator's initial sketches of  the book. Just last week, I received the sketches for "Cow Can't Sleep", which comes out fall of 2012. I love the sketches! They're a lot of fun, and will make Cow Can't Sleep an even funnier story. I wish I could post them for you to see, but I can't. However, to give you a feel for the style of the illustrations, you can see examples of some of the art done by Steve Gray (the illustrator for Cows Can't Sleep) at his web site at http://www.stevegrayillustration.com.


  1. Hi Ken...Glad you like the sketches. I'm having fun working on the finished art for your funny story!

  2. Steve,

    I can't wait to see the finished art. I know it will be awesome. Thanks for stopping by on my blog.
