Woodstock illustrator Jared Bliss seeks crowdfunding for original storybook

“A book was something I always wanted to do,” said Bliss. Now he has written a story to accompany a series of illustrations that follow the adventures of a charming hybrid animal named Valynn, who resembles a deer with the bushy tail of a fox. Jared calls the narrative “a journey of self-discovery,” set in a wondrous world that springs to vivid life in 12 of his ink-and-watercolor paintings. The exquisite detail and subtle, luminous color of the landscapes, seascapes and night skies of this magical world cry out for reproduction in bookplate form, and for sharing with the children in your life.
