BabyLit Book Series
Greg has partnered with Gibbs Smith and their BabyLit division to bring to life his vision of historically-themed ABC books. Not your typical “a is for apple” alphabet books, these clever and unique treasures introduce words many adults may want to learn with smart and playful illustrations that herald back to the golden era of book art. http://www.gibbs-smith.com
Greg’s historic ABC series is being kicked off by the wild west, medieval Europe, and Victorian eras. Three additional books for the series will be hitting the bookstore shelves in the coming months.
Let’s do the Mashed Potato and go back to the 60’s with this groovy ABC book I did with the publisher Gibbs Smith.
Make some noise with this ABC book from the jazz age!
A is for Atom
Create a reaction when you mix A is for Atom with a child’s curiosity!
Here is the initial version of K is for Kitchen and the final version with dad doing the baking.
R is for Railway
Every revolution starts with an idea. Bridge the gap between pre and post industrial revolution with R is for Railway.
An example of my process from very a rough sketch to final art.
S is for Sabertooth
Don’t be left in the stone age by not owning S is for Sabertooth!
Here are two versions for “U”. The publisher and I agreed to go with the image on the right.
V is for Vittles
V is for Vittles, and C is for Cute! This book will hopefully become a classic. Let your little ones discover the wild west and impress their friends with their superior vocabulary.
This is the initial cover produced for the first book in the series. The art is much more rendered than the interior pages and the design more complicated.
This early title page for the Wild West Alphabet didn’t make the book, but the cancan dancers did make it onto the back cover.
C is for Castle
From dragons to knights, this charming alphabet book of medieval Europe presents both daily life and mythical imagery that kids and parents alike will enjoy.
M is for Monocle
The Victorian era is fascinating with the duality of having one foot into the mechanization of the future and one foot in the class distinctions and traditions of the past. M is for Monocle is a highly entertaining conversation starter for parents and their kids.
