A Design Thing

If you ever have an idea to do something you’ve never done before it’s a good idea to think ahead a little. When I first came up with the idea to write and illustrate Chocolate Dreams, I thought writing and illustrating was pretty much all that was required.

Turns out there’s this whole other thing called design and I had really, really not given book design as much thought and consideration as I should have. The truth is I had a bunch of epic little chocolate rhymes and some cool little chocolate finger paintings ( as my friends would call them ) but their marriage was going to involve a little thing called DESIGN and the process was going to challenge me as much as the rest of the book had.
