Turkey for Dinner

Turkey for Dinner was created way back in 1995 to explore the feasibility of creating children's books using then current 'off-the-shelf' 3D software. To put this period in context, this was the same year Pixar released the first Toy Story movie, so 3D technology was not commonly seen in the mainstream yet.

I was already working as a illustrator back then but looking for a way to distinguish my style from other artists. 3D seemed like a good direction and, even though Turkey for Dinner is primitive by today's standards, it was a pretty good start for the time. The book was never published but it brought me a lot of other 3D work for many years.

You can now read Turkey for Dinner on the website for free. If you'd like to own a printed copy of the book, it will be available for purchase in the store soon. (Update Aug 3, 2008: The print edition is now available from Little Green Dog Press.)

Little Green Dog plans to produce more children's books so keep reading this blog for future title announcements.
