Alright, it’s like Christmas morning for me. Tielman has sent twenty-three sketches for Yalu And The Stinky Stink. Which one to post. Which one to post. Oh, I will end up posting them all. I’ll just do them one at a time so you, dear reader, will have a reason to keep coming back.
Enjoy the first of many preliminary Tielman sketches. The job for tomorrow will be to send him back commentaries.
Meanwhile, buy my first e-book and get a first hand look at Tielman’s completed work–the work that he did for Yalu And The Puppy Room must be seen to be believe. Oh, and I wrote a pretty good story too. All you need to do is head over to Amazon.com and enter Yalu And The Puppy Room. Be ready to be impressed.
Welcome to Tielman’s preliminary sketch of Yalu’s backyard. I suggested that he reexamine the pictures he did of the backyard and house from the first book to give him a better idea of what drawn. I also noted that the skunk needed to be on the other side of the mesh wired fence.
He’s got a good idea of what the backyard should look like. I asked for a big tree and a deck. I wanted there to be a green mesh wire fence so Yalu could see the skunk. The mesh fence plays a pivotal part of the book. Yalu is a curious dog out in the back all alone and the title of the book is Yalu And The Stinky Stink.
I will leave it to you, dear reader, to imagine what happens next.
There is a currently available e-book where you do not have to wait to find out what happens with Yalu on her first adventure. Ready to read it? All you have to do is click here.
Meet a dog who enjoyed the simple things in life. Yalu loved her chew bones. The best thing about them was chewing and chewing until the chew bone was down to the nub. That was when something magical happened. The chew bone nub would grow legs, sometimes wings, and head out to parts unknown. I personally think chew bone nubs ended up next to the missing laundry socks. Unlike lost laundry socks, a new chew bone would show up to replace the one that went away.
It’s great that something so simple could bring Yalu so many hours of joy.
Let’s see, I need a good transition to promote Yalu And The Puppy Room. While I am thinking about something witty to write, click here.
And now, for a Honey-Honey story about Yalu. Honey-Honey, AKA Lori, had many good times with Yalu. One of her favorite games with Princess Puppy was called Peek-A-Woo-Woo-Woo. It’s a very simple and fulfilling game involving a puppy, a people person(s), and a blanket.
How does one play Peek-A-Woo-Woo-Woo? Get one puppy, a cute brown golden retriever is preferred, but most puppies will play along, a people (more than one people can play Peek-A-Woo-Woo-Woo, and a blanket of which you only need one. Cover the blanket over the puppy for a few seconds, pull it back, and say, “Peek-A” and Yalu would always respond “Woo-woo-woo.” Repeat the blanket covering the dog again and again until the puppy’s tail stops waging, which could take a very long time.
How did Lori know that Yalu was having a good time and not just putting up with silly people tricks when playing Peek-A-Woo-Woo-Woo? There was always a happy face when the blanket came off Yalu’s head and huge puppy smile which are the best kinds of smiles.
It’s time for this self published author to promote his e-book. You can be reading Yalu And The Puppy Room within minutes. All you have to do is click here.
Tielman has emailed. The pictures are coming along. He liked the fact that Yalu will still be a puppy for the second book.That will make her easier to draw. Everything is still in the sketching phase. Doing that allows him to get a better idea of what the final pictures will look like.
I am in no rush. Tielman has the ideas of what I want for each picture and like artists throughout time, he has the ability to produce amazing art work. Today’s picture from Yalu And The Puppy Room is a perfect example. I asked Tielman if he could draw me a picture of Yalu seeing the house from the car for the first time. He asked if the house was one level or two. I answered two. What color was the house? Red. Did I want some tries and perhaps I garden? Sure. That was all I told him. The above picture was what he produced.
Like artists throughout time, Tielman can reach into someone’s mind, take that idea they have for a picture they want and produced something extraordinary.Thank goodness he uses his powers for good!
There is a great e-book filled with the wonderful artwork Tielman has done for me. When you are ready to be amazed, and yes, you will be amazed, click here.
Have you ever been laying on a bed and notice something on the floor? Most of the time it’s a toy and usually getting the toy is no problem, particularly when the one looking at the toy is a Golden Retriever. After all, retrieving is what they do.
Someones, it is better to have a people person get the toy. Letting people take care of problems like that makes them feel important. A dog should not have to do all the work around the house when it comes to retrieving toys on the floor. Besides, people love seeing a cute brown dog wagging her tail and smiling for all their wonderful help she receives..

Take a look at the tablecloth I had made. I have used it for quite sometime and have never noticed “This Golder Retriever Needs to Find a Forever Home.” Someone recently pointed out the “Golder” error at a recent flea market.
It’s moments like this where I have to take a moment to smile at such an oversight. Since replacing the typo would mean purchasing a new tablecloth and spending a good $225, I decided to break out some white paint and correct the typo.

Here is another sample sketch that my artist Tielman has prepared for the second book Yalu and the Stinky Stink. I really do admire his talent. In the time it has taken you to read this far, Tielman could have penciled a good portion of that picture. I’d like to say I am exaggerating, but I am probably not. His talent is that good and if you think the sketches are neat, wait until samples of the finish product come along.
