that's a great idea Drew. Make it happen. But my personal advice is to go for a mainstream book route. You only have to have like 20 pages and each one could be big and gorgeous. Just do it and print it out and send it off to some publishers and see if you get some interest. I bet you will. There's lot of resources out there. Like I said...make it happen! You owe it to yourself to try. Shoot big. Check this out....
Drew, your artistic style and imagination are wonderful. You really should consider being a children's book illustrator. Just come up with a cool story and you could be sittin' pretty. Hell, send your portfolio to Tim Burton and see what happens. Take a chance!
The birds are there on this because i wanted to worrk on somthing with traditional tattoo imagery (swallows, nautical stars, skulls...) but done is a 'cute' way....you'd have to ask Luke why he put them on his. I'm not sure.
