National parks all have iconic signs such as these two examples below from Yellowstone National and Yosemite National Park.
It came to my attention recently that my national park needed a sign. To explain, I created a fictional national park as the setting in my children’s book, Turtle Tube: An Erutuf National Park Novel, called Erutuf National Park. I have a map of the national park, but no sign.
I really love the idea of creating this sign as a visual for children. In particular, I like the idea of creating it to use as stickers. Stickers are the rage right now covering water bottles, laptops, and more. So, I started the process of working with a designer (as I am definitely not an artist).
Here are the first few draft designs:
We went back and forth with ideas and came up with this final design:
I love it! And I’m having it made into stickers! Yay!
Just thought I’d share a bit of author life and work today. Thanks for reading! 🙂
