So I’ve started work on publishing my science themed calendar on Lulu.com, the print on demand book publishing company.

They have good prices from what I’ve seen so far, and occasionally offers free shipping. But they are a nightmare to work with if you are  a new publisher, like me. Support is non-existent and their help pages don’t work sometimes, you’ll get a 404 error. It’s a huge website and company and I think they are understaffed. I’ve gotten my orders mixed with someone else, but they fixed that in a very professional and automated way. You’ll only get no-reply mails to notify you of issues and updates, so not much human contact.

But when I’m done publishing, those of you who have expressed your desire to own a copy of my calendar, you will be able to have the calendar delivered at home at half the price I can make it with my printer and maybe even with free shipping if you make an account with with Lulu.

Watercolor Review
Stabilo: are awesome fine-point pens that can be blended  with water and they come in  diverse nuances if you purchase the bigger packs.
Staedler:  watercolor pencils are smooth and vibrant, bendable, they last a long time and come in numerous mate nuances. If you’re looking for metallic watercolor pencils then search for  Derwent pencils.
Canson: is a brand of great absorbent specially dedicated watercolor paper. It’s thicker than normal paper and you can still feel the fibers and the sheets come  in many sizes.

Updates on Farmopoly the board game

As you may know I’ve been working on a board game named Farmopoly. I’ve always liked Monopoly type games and strategy games in general so I created this board game in its spirit.
board game
It has it’s slots with different themes to help kids get acquainted with different types of animals and governmental organizations: mammals, birds, vegetarian, carnivores, monarchy, federations etc. You have the fun of a classic monopoly game but with small differences so it resembles a year on a farm and the work that that implies.

Science themed calendar

Hi everyone! I’ve made a science themed calendar for anyone who loves science and enjoys geek  culture.

Every month features a popular science that has inspired many Si-Fi novels and movies.

My little bunnies Ernest and Coraline will walk you through the calendar. Hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did making it. And as always I look forward to your advice, that is how we improve!

Take care!

I’m happy to announce the test was a success!

The parents loved my collectible book and said they would buy this for their kids and most importantly the kids picked it up and started reading, not just looking at the pictures!
book preview

I’m really happy about this and I’ve sent some copies to elementary school teachers to get their feedback as well and while I wait I’ll be looking for some publishing companies to see what they can offer. I’ve been asked if I’ll make this into a app which I’ve considered but don’t know yet because of the costs so I’ll have to read on that too.

Till then I’d like to share with you this preview and hope you’ll enjoy it. I’ll be posting a filmed presentation of it soon because a lot of people didn’t seem to understand what it was until they had it their hands. Just a quick recap it’s a : collectible sticker book  designed to help kids learn about the history and geography of the USA while having fun collecting the illustrations like trading cards.

I wish you all a great day!

Ernest n Coraline’s USA tour| Collectible sticker book

I’m very happy to announce that my collectible sticker book has entered the “beta phase” , I’ll be printing this week some books and stickers for my little testers and you are welcome to participate as well, feedback is very much welcomed!

The Ernest and Coraline USA tour book is a little collectible magazine book, where you can collect stickers with all the illustrations I made for the tour I held last summer, in which for 2 moths every day I illustrated one of the 50 states.

I’m from Europe but I live in the US now and there were a lot of things I didn’t know but I learned doing this illustration challenge for 2 months. Then I made this fun book to help kids learn the same simple facts and to make education fun. They can trade and collect the illustrations with the states like Pokemon cards!
