A painting that tells a story. So simple. So fun. So pefect for tiny by design.
The idea came to me early Sunday morning. Like all good ideas it came out no where (I would say, "it just felt right" but I say that about everything:) so it's getting kinda old) But it did feel just right, for the record.
I was on one of my long runs and thinking about doing another alphabet painting for a little girl. I have been wanting to do something all castle and princess related. Some of the letters were tricky (the typical scoundrels like x and z). I was running and thinking and running and thinking when the sentence "Angels looked over the castle" came into my head. This led in to "they watched over a boy named Ben" which led into "who craved a crown for his crazy hair". You get the picture. Images came into my head to illustrate each part with all the letters in the alphabet. The story changed a bit (from angels to king Arthur) and it became a full a-z story about a boy named Ben and his amazing adventures trying to get into the castle!
Here is a tiny snippet:

More to follow in a couple weeks as I get this painting on a giant 30x30 canvas.

This then inspired my launch of a new line for tiny by design:
I will offer an entire line of original alphabet story paintings for boys, girls and families.
Custom story boards will also be a big part...imagine one giant canvas outlining an adventure for your little ones. Entire families can be included - kiddos, moms, dads, dogs, cats, favorite aunts, the family cow - really, the sky is the limit! Illustrated family adventure that provides fun decor, a good story and some alphabet learning all in one!
Then comes the possibilities for children's books. AHHHHHHHHHH, the future is bright!
More details and ordering information coming soon!
