Does anyone read lettersofnote.com?
...About giving you advice...pointers on how to properly write and illustrate a picture book...all I can say is this:
This is a field in which no one can give you pointers but yourself.
The big successes in this field all succeeded because they wrote and they wrote and they drew and they drew. They studied what they'd drawn and they studied what they'd written each time asking themselves one question: How can I do it better, next time?
To develop an individual style of writing and drawing, always go to yourself for criticsm. If you ask advice from too many other people, then you no longer are yourself.
The thing to do, and I am sure you will do it, is to keep up your enthusiasm! Every job is a lot of fun, no matter how much work it takes. If you'll plug away and do exactly what you are doing, making it better and better every month and every year...that you CAN be successful.
The very best of luck to you!

The Thing In The Distance has its North American premiere at the 2D or Not 2D festival in Seattle Washington.
For details of the festival visit HERE.
From the festival blog:
"Here’s a perfect example real innovation and yet a traditional approach combined. The somewhat spooky but extremely enjoyable “The Thing in the Distance” by Elliot Cowan is one you must not miss. Suffice it to say, you won’t have seen anything’ like it before!"
