Biff! Bash! Bonk! And so begins another day on Bumpy Island.
It’s been eating away at me for a little over 5 years now, but ever since my wife was pregnant with our first son (whom we named Bumpy before we knew who or what he was) i had the notion of a children’s book form in my head. Sometimes it takes a big life event to get you thinking of these sorts of things and i’ve always been frustrated at how i’ve never progressed it past a few notes and scribblings. After last years success in completing my Monsters Alphabet i realised part of the drive for completing that was putting it publicly out there (Facebook) and getting feedback – albiet from friends but it was still a good booster to continue and more importantly complete something. So i’m going public with this project in an attempt to see it come to fruition.
The story of ‘Bumpy Island’ is about a small group of inhabitants from the suitably named location and tells of how their environment affects them and their individuality. Blogging the process and progress seems like a good idea at the moment – somebody nudge me in a years time if it’s still not finished!
