Sylvie’s Surreal Sleepscape

Sylvie Greendale . end pages

1st illustration for Storyteller Academy class, “Creating Atmosphere”, with Illustrator, Isabella Kung.

This is a surreal sleepscape for all the Sylvie Greendale book end pages. The night scene (inspired by Marc Chagall’s blue paintings) would be the same for each book, but the DREAM DOODLES would change, depicting jumbled info Sylvie learned that day which her subconscious is processing while asleep.

Sylvie Greendale Takes a Walk… on MOSS

p 1 “Stegosaurus walks among us

stopping twice a day for lunches.

Will he snack on all our noses?

Or might he nibble on our toeses?…

Sylvie Greendale is me as a 1st grader filled with wonder

+ me as a mother filled with wisdom,

and ever a wordNERD!

ENRICH your vocabulary

be EDUCATED about a wee wonder of this world

and discover how its meaning can EMPOWER your everyday life.

p 32 ...’matter matters’, Sylvie Greendale concludes.”

COMING SOON! as soon as I find a publisher…

introducing Sylvie Greendale

“Sylvie Greendale takes a walk, reveling in the wee wonders of the world around her and wondering why they really matter…

…’Matter matters”, concluded Sylvie Greendale.”

NEW passion project! a CHILDREN’S BOOK SERIES!

Sylvie Greendale is in this world, yet not of it. She is me as a 1st grader, exploring the world around her + me as a mother of 2 amazing humans, with the wisdom of a middle aged woman.

& a wordNERD.

STAY TUNED!!
