I've got myself a website and I've got a blog. Oh yeah, and I've written and illustrated a children's picture book, my first attempt, which is what this blog is going to be about for the most part. It all started around a year ago when my daughter and I met a neighbour while on an evening walk and my daughter told her a very amusing story about a man who lived with a bunch of cats and all the problems they would cause for him. When we got home I asked her to write that story down, which she did. I asked her if a could use that story, maybe expand on it a bit, and use it for a book that I wanted to make and she said "sure." I loved the whole process of creating that book, writing and illustrating it. I ended up being very pleased with it and, as a result, want to publish it. Guess that I'll have to roll up my sleeves and get to work on the publishing part now. Probably won't be as much fun but I guess it's a part of the process.
