Basement Beasties

Three years ago Rachel and I had the spontaneous idea of doing a Michel Gagne style children's book. Like many self-motivated little side-projects it never got complete. Tasks like adjusting all the page layouts, making backgrounds, and adding textures to all the creatures never got done. Once the down-time in the studio was over it was put on the back burner, we got very busy with other projects and it was never thought of again. Ben Jeddrie supplied the wonderful writing, Rachel Morrison did all the beastly sketches, and I provided the book cover and creature colors. I've recently uncovered these while going through old back-up CDs, here's some samples.

You guys should try farming it on Lulu.com. Self publishing, baby cakes!
