Fat? Or PHAT!!
Like the way the new Illustration Friday site looks. I have often discussed with other illustrators how the IF site could be improved. It’s as if IF read our minds and made the changes accordingly.
I didn’t paint this week. I was too busy moving my studio. Stuff was all over the place so painting just wasn’t going to happen. But I thought the new IF looked so cool that I wanted to participate.
So here’s what I did do this weekend. I finished the final draft of Pony Wombat and the Second Ark. The story is Phat!
Plus, I started working on the site.
Pony Wombat and the Second Ark is about a third grade boy who has the idea to recreate the story of Noah's Ark. Using his vast pet collection and a rubber raft Pony pretends his backyard is the ocean while he waits for his pool to be filled.
The neighborhood bully, Morton, makes fun of Pony until the backyard pool cracks. The surge from the ruptured pool sweeps everyone down the street in one giant wave.
The seemly miracles occurrence gives Morton the idea to start a club that recreates Bible stories. Unfortunately Morton’s flawed understanding of the Bible ends in some silly disasters. It's up to Pony to stop Morton before things really get out of hand.
