Illustration Friday: smoke

Smoke: Feline P.I.

When you just need to know, Smoke the Feline P.I., is the cat for the job. This is an UnBook not written by Scott E Franson. But you never know, one day when you least expect it at your local bookstore—Smoke, will be there.

UnBooks are a creative exersize for me. Each Friday morning I wake up and go to www.illustrationfriday.com to see what the new word is. Then over the course of the day I develop a book cover, usually for a children's picture book, with an occasional novel. It is a nice opportunity to experiment and have fun. Before this morning, I had never met Smoke, the Feline P.I., and now I have a new character that can begin to inhabit my stories. I kind of like this cat. He is here for me whenever I need some company, and he doesn't eat.

I have enjoyed creating this image. I hope that you enjoy it!

I am a fan of the cat too. I can't wait to see what his first adventure is. What a great idea.

I love your UnBooks :D The cat looks mysterious, it would be great to read about his adventures one day, so I really hope the UnBook will became a Book.
