I Told You I've Been Busy! Part One

At long last, the t's have been crossed and the i's have been dotted, and this project has been finished. I have eluded to the fact that I have been busy lately, and here's why... (Well, there are other things still pending, but this is ONE reason. I still have another MAJOR project that will be done this month that I'm excited to share with you.)

Anyway, this project is called "Faux Paw Goes to the Games", and it's a book and DVD that are now being sold by iKeepSafe.org, a great organization whose mission is to teach kids and their parents and teachers about being safe on the Internet. This is the third book, and it takes place in Beijing, China during the "Great Animal Games". I think it turned out just great, and I'm proud to share it here. Make sure to check out the iKeepSafe website when you're done here so you can see what they're all about!

The real reason to show you these images isn't to highlight my work, but rather to showcase the talents of two wonderful friends that are the real art superstars on the book. Ken Chandler patiently cleaned up and inked my chicken scratch character art, and Bryan Beach added amazing depth and value with his unbelievable background work. My hat goes off to them for their skillful work. Thanks, guys! I couldn't have done it without you!

Additional thanks needs to go out to Sally Linford for writing such a fun story, to Chad Erekson and Kelly Loosli for developing the original Faux Paw short film, and Shane Lewis for the artistic influence he may not even realize he had on this project.

These look great, man! That's quite a huge project for so few of you to put together. You do fine work, and I am proud to know you, and I still hope to have lunch with you again soon, and... yep, that's all, I guess.

Your characters and colors make it all come to life, and of course Bryan's backgrounds are amazing! This book is pure magic.

Many thanks for letting me play a role in this project Adrian. It was great working with you. I'm certain it will touch many lives, and keep kids safe.

Oh, and Adrian... don't talk to strangers.
