Never Read a Book Before Bed

Personal Project

Never Read a Book Before Bed is a dire warning about what happens when you sneak in a story before sleep. This story is a collaboration by longtime friends and former coworkers, Jen Wilson and Josh Lewis.

Author Jen Wilson

Illustrator Josh Lewis

Designer Josh Lewis

BOOK DEVELOPMENT

For the main characters, I explored their design and emotional range. The brother imagines his plush alligator as a real alligator and dragon.

Every whacked-out dream needs a pirate ship bed.

THUMBNAIL SKETCHES

Before diving into sketches, I create these rough sketches. While things change naturally along the way, this lays out the plan for the book. 

SKETCHES

Both value and text are added to the sketches to make sure everything is working well together.
