Another robot coffee break “painting”. I submitted my books to some agents hoping to get some traction in picture books. (Stories I have read, says that it takes up to ten years to get a book deal….)
To top it off, my illustrations are not typical of those found in children’s books. So what do you think is this an appropriate style for a book?
coffebreak play. I can’t explain everything….
Hey I made the image in a new ACI book!
ACI Reinforced Concrete Design Manual — Coming in Summer 2015
Trying to market sucks, that’s why I became an engineer instead of going to business school. Everybody says, use social media to reach your audience!
I’m terrible at social media. I don’t tweet or facebook or Instagram or…anything. Even this blog has seen better days…
What I like to do is create odd stuff, like concept images for another book.

The hardest part of making these books is actually getting the word out about them. It comes down to endless self-promotion or finding an Oprah of the bridge world to tweet you!
I made a quick video which may explain the books to viewers… I also looked into printing them and it is not finacially feasible without a publisher or a good Kickstarter campaign (which I may try…).
This may look better on YouTube, wordpress has a problem with HD videos…..
