My friend Janee has been telling me for years that I needed to write a book, and she thought it would be a children’s book, and that I should do the drawings for it.
I am a TERRIBLE visual artist. I can’t draw. I love to doodle. I’m terrible at that too.
But last year I wrote a song that felt like I did when I was a child, and the lyrics felt like a children’s book. The song itself is about the effortlessness and fearlessness that comes with being a child in search of creation and discovering the world. Kids don’t seem to mind if they can draw or sing or not, why should we? Let’s get back to that fearlessness and curiosity.
So I did it. I put my doodles to the lyrics and made a book. It felt really good and a little scary, particularly because I’m a terrible visual artist. I left some blank pages in the back so you can doodle too. Right now it’s available on Amazon, and I’ll have a direct order through my site soon.
Here’s to all the doodlers out there!!!! xox
