Signs and Stickers

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! πŸ™‚

  1. I love your new sign for ERUTUF National Park. Stickers, Yes! I want some. ( I like this one better than the cabin one)
