The beginning of a new year is a good time to pull out an old project and give it another chance to thrive.
That is the plan for:
Steeve the snake and the professional ABC Critters.
Maybe I should start with how did this project came to be?
On a cold night in February a long time ago (2017), I was on watch on an icebreaker in Trois-Rivières (Québec) keeping an eye on the traffic (ships) and the movement of the ice under the Pont Laviolette and on the Lac St-Pierre. What was I doing there? I used to be an navigation officier... But that is another story for another time.
When everything is going smoothly on the river, time can be a little long. On such a night, a pad of scrap papers and a pencil crossed my path and I ended up drawing a Mole Musician that I named Mike.
By the end of the month, I ended up sketching 26 animals doing each a profession starting with their letter.
And that was the end of it and put the sketches away.
In 2019, while looking through my box of sketches, the pile of animals caught my attention and a crazy idea crossed my mind: I should use them to do an ABC book!
So I set on the adventure of creating a book :Steve the Snake and the professional ABC Critters.
For many reasons that I will take the time to share with you in another post at another time, I decided to try to self published it via a crowd funding site probably around spring time.
