The Purple Coconut, 826 illustrations
Here are some illustrations from today’s volunteer storytelling at 826 Valencia. The kids where from Nueva Elementary School and the story was about a cow and a penguin searching for the mystical purple coconut. In order to find it and the evil water bottle pirates that gaurd some great treasure, the pair have to travel to skate parks and bust certain bmx combos. I had a fun time illustrating it, but it was one of the more tedious writing sessions I’ve been in on. Of course Mrs. Blue rejected my ending today.. again.
and of course I wore my eyepatch.
