Connecting with Kids through stories.
Your Kids, Your Grandkids or Sick Kids
Step 1: Make Up Our Crazy Story
Pick the character names, pick the character’s animal, hit record on the phone and let your imagination run wild!!
Step 2: Sketch
Agree on which scenes we needed, draw dreadful sketches of each scene on the whiteboard then figure out what was needed in the background!
Step 3: Illustrate
Send sketches and scene descriptions to Julia (our amazing Illustrator!!), send some photos of the kids to explain particular positions then cross our fingers and wait!!! Check out the results that Julia produced below!!
See the magic unfold!
Here’s how Lachlan the T Rex started out head butting the poor Pterodactyl’s tree!!
The swirling rocks and wind is my favourite part of how this image was captured for the final version. It really brings the wrestle scene to life!!
Amazing how a true artist can take what you see on the whiteboard and produce what you see in the illustrations!!!Travelling Dads
Julia was able to take the inspiration from these starting images to create the Wonderful character of Isla the Giant Squid!!
WOW this one started out really badly!!! But with some scene staging from the boys, Julia was able to capture the moment really well!!
Getting the hand, wrist and knuckle positioning was critical for the Crow Peck scene!! Enter the real Hamish and Lachlan!!
Lachlan thinks he’s found who Crow Pecked him in this scene!!
The Pterodactyl asks Lachlan the Trex how could he have possibly Crow Pecked him, after all he’s a Pterodactyl!!!
