Letters to Ellie

So just in case someone was interested, this is an eBook that I did some illustrations for. It's about the author's experiences with having a premature baby and - actually I think I'll just steal the description from amazon (it will probably do a better job of explaining what it is)


"Dana always knew that when he one day had a daughter, he would write her letters. Letters filled with fantastical stories. Fatherly advice. Words of encouragement. His letters would be their little ritual together and he always assumed he'd have a lifetime to tell her his thoughts. But when his daughter Ellie was finally born, the unthinkable happened. Arriving in the world sixteen weeks too early and weighing only one pound and six ounces, she survived only at the mercy of sophisticated technology and astonishing medical interventions. Even then, the odds of Ellie living was at best a coin toss.

Helplessly hovering above his daughter's incubator, Dana did the only thing he could think of: he began to write her his letters. With a lifetime worth of things to say but perhaps only a precious few hours to say them, he worked on this letters feverishly, not knowing if each new day he had with Ellie might be his last. In his letters, he documented her hardships in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. He wrote her stories about children made of clock parts and journeys to the edge of the world. He gave her advice about how to find romance, how to find happiness, and how to find "secret bathrooms." And finally, he filled his letters with enough tender words, tears, and love to last a lifetime."

Anyway so I just did the cover and the illustrations for the short stories that are included inside. So if you want you can take a look at it (but don't feel obligated to do so).
