Laura Thomas- "Project GST"- How did it start?

Being several states away, we met for the first time on Skype, noted Yes! for work chemistry, and began working together on Laura's vision for a personalized love story(/wedding guest book) that she would write and I would illustrate.

Before contacting me, Laura came up with this BRILLIANT plan to create love story books for twitter-pated lovers that want to share the story of their love! One of the first things to do in order to put a face to the business idea was to create a..... (you got it)... LOGO! 

Thus "Greatest Story Ever Told" was born. And of course we needed to make a visual graphic for it. *duhsville

aaand...

aaand...

Once we were finished with the logo and visual branding, the book itself POOFED into our hands out of thin air! 

 Just KIDDING! It several several hours, days, and rough sketches to get to a place of creating the final illustrations for the book. And the story was BORN!      Enjoy Laura and adrian's story below!
