Beginnings of “hi jane”

Here’s is the bulletin where James the Hedgehog begins his exsistence. I’m having fun with this book. I prefer children’s books with good content for the imagination. I used to amuse myself in church by imagining myself a small fairy flying around the ceiling, and landing on the lights. I will never forget those church lights as long as I live.

Yesterday I began sketching out the story… I think most of us have all experienced un-requited “Love.” It certainly is a never- tiring theme in stories. So this is the Hedgehog version of Charlie Brown and the Little Red Headed Girl. Except, in this story… well, I won’t give it away. For now, you can see a page from my sketchbook, and a close up on a scene where James bakes muffins for Jane, and Jane (naturally) feeds them to her pet fish.

Are you sure you shouldn’t call it “Why, Jane?” because you would wonder why…it could be a book about assuming(?) something wrong because he won’t ask her why and thinks up these crazy reasons but in the end he finnally asks her and there is a simple answer to each one. Looks Cute!
