BIG BOOK of Wacky States finally goes to Prototype… #states #childrensbook #kids

Ok, so all the states are now done and the book leaves next week to be Prototyped after 1 year of design. Also will be showing it to a variety of key people for proofreading and such to make sure it’s wacky enough. Very exciting stuff… and to celebrate… here’s IDAHO!!


Final Sketch complete for the BIG BOOK of Wacky States!


Today is a landmark day. This morning, I completed the 50th sketch for my next book, “Fireball Tim’s BIG BOOK of Wacky States.” And that state was Wyoming. You know… where Devil’s Tower is from “Close Encounters?”

This is truly exciting because it’s taken about a year to do all 50 as they are head an shoulders in complexity above Book 1. So what’s next?

They’ll get scanned, adding some photoshop adjustments and then assembled into a prototype like the first book. It’s an awesome Visual Textbook for kids, teaching them something cool about every state and again, pushing their creativity. The publisher for book 1 has decided not to do this one, so I’ll be in search of a really solid new publisher with a grand scope and vision.

Time to get crackin.’

BIG BOOK of WACKY STATES nears completion… @utah @arizona


Now, even thought the BOOK 2 (Wacky States) comes out for Christmas, that doesn’t mean it’s done. In fact, I have several states still to do. And today, I’ve been working on UTAH. I can finally say that now that the book has been announced. Whew…

But, like ARIZONA here… it’ should be fun, what with all them Arches ‘n stuff. But what kind of vehicle will UTAH be? A COOOOL vehicle, silly.
