So I mentioned on my Facebook earlier this week that one post would feature something very close to me in which I reach out to you guys asking for your advice and suggestions. So here it is....
Some of you may have realized that art takes a special place in my heart - it was something I enjoyed doing as a child and I turned it into a hobby as I proceeded with a career in science. I was doodling one day and discovered a love for sketching marine life - particularly fish. The above photo is my favorite fish - the mandarinfish - of which I also have tattooed on my foot (see the image here in the treasures shop banner). Ok, so why am I bringing this up? Because I need your help to turn my dream into a reality. Let me tell you how:
I want to turn these little illustrations into a children's coloring book with an emphasis on marine conservation. I have so many concepts and ideas for this book, but I really have no idea where to start. I figured by presenting my style to my readers and the world, maybe some doors will open up. I never truly know who reads my blog.. I'm hoping maybe one of you will have some advice on how to present this to a publisher, or even which publisher to consider? Or maybe some suggestions on how to publish the book myself ? I don't suppose I really even know the right questions to ask!
So think about it and leave a comment below if you'd like. OR if you feel your comments are more personal, feel free to email me directly. Anything is appreciated! You guys have been so wonderful thus far in these first two months of blogging and I figured maybe it was time to let you even further into a bit of my personal life. Thanks for letting me share!
Today I'm in Florida, enjoying the States for a wedding during the weekend. I don't return to PR until Monday, so there probably won't be another post until Tuesday or Wednesday as I take a little break. (Be watching, there's another giveaway coming up REALLY soon!!) As always, I'll keep ya'll updated with photos and findings on Facebook. Enjoy your weekend everyone! Be safe!
Until next week,
