Marvel - The Boy Who Cried Wolf

The following is a book I wrote and illustrated. The story is based on one that I used to tell my kids when they were small. I apologize that it is not photographed well, I've done the best I can do with the tools I have. It is 8" x 8".

The book is illustrated using characters from seventeen different Cricut cartridges. I also used IKandee chalks to shade and shadow the pages. The top of each page was colored with alcohol inks on acrylic pages so there is depth to the sky.

  1. Oh my gosh! I absolutley ADORE this book! So happy, and fun and full of creative details! I love it!!!!!

  2. What an absolutely amazing book! I can't believe you created entire scenes with Cricut carts -- I recognized a few that I have myself. I also love the way you told an old story using family members, and giving it a non-scary spin while keeping the moral of the story. You should submit it to Provocraft or enter it in a contest!
