A Box Story is an award winning illustrated picture book that invites the reader to look at things in a different way. With the use of hand drawn images, you are taken through simple thought provoking ideas about a box and how it is not just a box.
The idea for “A Box Story” came to me in a dream. I woke up at that moment and sketched out the idea right away. Within the next few days I had put aside all the projects I was working on and poured my heart into the book.
My original intention was to keep the drawings simple and in black and white, leaving the reader to use their imagination in interpreting the images. I eventually decided to give a splash of color to the illustrations while retaining the intended subtle message.
The metaphor for the box is not an entirely new idea, but I felt a deep personal connection in its “meaningful simplicity” that I had to share it in my own unique way. I hope that the reader is affected in the same way and that the idea grows in their mind and heart as it did in mine.
