I took some time off from the CONSPIRACY project to write and illustrate my first kid’s poetry book. It’s called, “It’s Weird to Grow a Beard” and it should be out on Kindle, Nook, iPad and PDF formats by the end of January. Hopefully the Mayans were wrong.
It’s 17 poems and 39 illustrations. Took a few months but I think it turned out great. It was a necessary break from all the research I’ve been doing on CONSPIRACY. This book is pure fun. I think it’ll be good for kids from three to ten years of age.
Now all I have left to do is get it formatted for the various eBook formats. Also need to format it for the physical book. Each one is a slightly different thing. Not easy. And I’m creating a new web site that’s more “kid friendly” then this one. That one is Neal-Fox.com (with a dash). Also created a trailer for the book.
So this should take me clear into the beginning of 2013. Then on to CONSPIRACY!
Happy Holidays to you all.
Working on the Conspiracy project is a major undertaking. It’ll probably take well over a year to complete. Especially now that I’ve added a Graphic Novel to the project. Also, the subject matter requires a lot of research. And all of it is disturbing. So I figured I create something to make me feel better while I’m doing all this depressing stuff.
What better way to feel good than to do something for kids. Something silly, something that might teach an important lesson or two. Something that’s light and fun and a joy to create. That’s what I’m doing with this new project. It’s a book of poetry for kids. I’ll also be illustrating the poems. At this point I’ve got two poems written already. One is called, “A Frog in a Puss” and the other is, “Why Not!”
Working on this project is making me feel great. It’s reminding me about the joy of being free. It’s reminding me why I started the Conspiracy project. It’s all for the future of our planet. And kids are the future.
If you’ve looked through my galleries you’ve noticed a series of pictures called, “The Conspiracy Series”.
This is a group of digitally manipulated photographs combined with some hand drawn art that cover the various topics that the main-stream media like to call, “conspiracy theories”. Continue reading
