Never Read a Book Before Bed
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.

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.
Before diving into sketches, I create these rough sketches. While things change naturally along the way, this lays out the plan for the book.
Both value and text are added to the sketches to make sure everything is working well together.
