Smiling Thing (Part 1)

This art e-book was created to encourage people to smile. I use these images to remind my kids to smile more often and to easily explain to them why it’s so important. However, even though I had my kids in mind when I created these images, I encourage people of all ages to use these simple tips to improve their own outlook and harness the power of smiling.

My visual art e-book integrates images and concepts/ideas together to make them more playful, memorable, accessible, and user-friendly. I find that I intuitively mash the descriptive, sensorial, visual, and poetic things I experience into complete simple pictures that help me learn more effectively.

In many cases, my visual art e-books are very child-like because I’m trying to distill high level ideas into easy, quick, understandable chunks, so that I and everyone else can immediately apply what was just learned.
