One for the Books

This is one of the great jobs I've ever done for somebody. This is a promotional image for a locally owned and operated bookstore called One for the Books. It's a great little store selling new and used books and music as well as stuff for kids like toys and puppets. When I talked to them about carrying "Mom's Backyard Zoo" (which they do) Don--the owner--looked through it and hired me to do this drawing for them. They were great to work for in that they kept me pointed in a direction, weren't afraid to give critiques, and basically let me run with it. It was a great, fun job creating great, fun characters that capture some of our Florida iconography in a cool way.

One for the Books is located at:
3810 Del Prado Blvd

Cape Coral, FL

If you find yourself in town here, please go in and check out this cool independent bookstore.

This is REALLY cute! You need to market this idea to libraries/bookstores/etc.

I will have to remember this store if we make it your way - looks awesome!
