My eight-year-old twin nephews asked me if it was alright for Flat Stanley to visit me. For those of you who don’t know who Flat Stanley is, Flat Stanley is a children’s book character who was flattened by a bulletin board which made him paper thin. Being paper thin, Flat Stanley has the the ability to travel around the world in an envelope and experience the various exotic locales. After his “visit” is through, Flat Stanley is mailed back to the sender, along with a series of photographs illustrating his adventure.

For my assignment I was given a blank Flat Stanley template and I had to illustrate my own interpretation of Flat Stanley and photograph him around scenic Cedar Falls. I decided I couldn’t simply do a straight forward assignment, so, nine facial expressions, two changes of clothes (all penciled, inked, and digitally colored), and three days of work later… here is my fun with Flat Stanley.
