Initial Ideas

While on a riverboat tour of the Peruvian Amazon in 2004 I decided to create a children's book about a boy entering an imaginary jungle through a secret passageway in his bedroom closet.  He would be introduced to the denizens of the jungle by a host of friendly characters who teach him not to be afraid of the many mysteries that the jungle has to offer.


The links to the right can take you to examples of the book at various stages in my creative process.  Unfortunately this book was never completely finished or published, but I plan to revisit and self publish this project in the future.
