IF: Perspective



For this week's IF I decided to upload a page from my final children's book illustration project. It was a short rhyme I found on Kids' Space. The words are by a 7 year old named Quinn and it goes like this:

"The Missing Toy"

I fell into a big black hole while looking for my toy,

I walked into a bear's cave and man! Oh boy!

The bear saw me,

The bear ate me,

Then I found my toy!

I instantly fell in love with it! Love at the first sight! Hope you enjoy it too...

PS - I may upload other pages of this little book project...

You're illustration visualizes the words so wonderfully!!
