Rolando is an enormous version of the upcoming Goo Guys & Gals ®™ book "Rolando Responsible" currently being illustrated. This indoor OR outdoor piece will have 4ft x 4ft pages (28 total including covers) which viewers will be free to turn on their own. I am working with a local book bindery to create a functional, unique, oversize binding for the book that can handle the ArtPrize crowds. Highly colorful, this large-format book is a piece about the necessity and benefits of teaching children to appreciate reading early. It's also a message to parents that they need to start preparing their child for school early. When really young children explore books with their parents, and then begin to explore them on their own as they grow a little older, great things happen in their education. Character values are paramount to success, too, so we've created a fun story to help kids learn about Responsibility. This piece is about giving children the tools they need to succeed in school and life!
