"Why Doesn't Daddy Feel So Well?" Chapter 8 Illustration spot.

Author Rick (R.A.) Kelley.
Illustrator R. Crowmer (meee!! *.*)

All Rights Reserved.

The project I worked on a while ago, my first children's book publication. It was very fun, and a new learning experience.

"Why Doesn't Daddy Feel So Well?" is a book aimed at younger kids in families coping with an alcoholic parent. The book no doubt has a serious subject matter, but Rick did an excellent job of making it so young kids could understand. That said, I also tried my best to make the illustrations colorful and calming for a younger audience possibly dealing with a stressful issue.

I'm not feeling the greatest, so quickly: Ch 8 just tells the kids they are not alone in this, and... stuff.... sorry xD I do like how this came out though...And this is the final one fyi.

Please feel free to check out the book at these fine vendors *shot*: (click hypertext links)

lol xD faceless invaders from space, that's what... I thought it was quite the divergence from the rest of the book but I just went with it... and they seem awfully happy about it too...

lol, j/k. I think it was mostly about telling kids there are many other people in the world struggling with the same issues they have, and they aren't alone in their fight =) put shortly x3
