GrandmaJoy and Grandpappy

Hello All,
I know you have wondered where I have been . Well I have been so busy happily creating and illustrating a series of educational coloring books for children.
I will shortly be posting them, so come back soon.


  1. Sounds like a great project Alston! Looking forward to seeing the result.

  2. yes, looking forward to seeing what you've been working on!

  3. Thank you Deborah,
    My coloring book project is very time consuming, but I love it.
    My biggest problem has been finding an American company to make the dolls which I created to go along with the books. But I think I finally have found one. They are making prototypes for me now, and if they are good we will go forward. So hopefully, we will be ready in about a month ( if not sooner).
    Keep checking in.

  4. Thanks Robin,
    My project is taking longer than I had hoped, but I really want to do it right. I am working with a Learning Strategist at a local elementary school. I have created a couple of dolls to go along with the books and am having a costume made so I can dress up like one of the characters and visit the kids in schools. I am really excited about the project and having fun besides.

  5. Hey Alston! I've been thinking about you a lot the past several days. I hope the project's coming along well. I can't wait to see the finished books. I'll give you a call soon.


  6. Happy Fathers Day Don.
    So good to hear from you.I have had quiet a "learning" experience with the books and dolls.Printing and manufacturing is a whole new world for me. BUT it has all been good, just a much slower process than I thought it would be.
    Look forward to hearing what is going on with you.
