Hola ! Welcome to my website :-)

Hello everybody, thanks for stopping by!

As this year is now drawing to a close I am recapping some of my recent projects accomplished this year.

I illustrated a children’s book that was published in February this year under Black Rose Writing called Why worry, William Wasp. The author, Rod Kelly is a wonderful children’s book writer with a vast array of titles, all of which share important messages with wonderfully adorable characters and are told with a strong humerous palette that both children and parents love!

Why worry, William Wasp is a delightful story about an overly cautious health and safety inspector who takes extra measures to ensure everyone in his town of Kilkirk are all safe. He also happens to be a wasp, and as such has a sting which he is so afraid might hurt somebody that he is scared of venturing out of the house.

I had a lot of fun designing William Wasp and his over the top health and safety uniform. He wears a safety hat and flourescent jacket at all times, even in the home and while cooking, infact, additionally he wears thick safety specs and oven gloves – you know – just in case! I made his little kitchen have hazard signs everywhere and all sharp objects are labelled as such.

One of my favourite pages to illustrate was him driving his car.

I enjoyed adding in surrounding details and with each frame I gradually zoomed out revealing characters such as an old lady and snails overtaking him.

The book is available to buy in many leading bookstores and of course on amazon >

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks really nice!
    I’m also interested in this topic + have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    I also want to improve SEO of my website. Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about Rockwall Investments and the way how normal people can make money with this company.)

    I wanted to subscribe to your newsletter, but I couldn’t find it. Do you have it?

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    P.S.
    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Regards
    Jan Zac
