The idea for the 2nd book (Mopsy, Flopsy, and Ted) came from drawing a story with my super cool niece in Sacramento. She came up with a story, I suggested a few changes, and then I drew it REALLY fast. It was done really fast because she waited until a half an hour before I had to fly back to L.A. and said, "Bobby, we didn't do our story!"
I really liked the structure of our quicky story (see the original story in the photo album section) and I developed it to pitch as another children's book. After many more lunch time drawing sessions at Frank's diner I turned in the roughed out book and...
They liked it more than the 1st one!
But for legal reasons I had to change the name of the book. Flopsy, Mopsy, and Ted became Wubby, Widget, and Walden. My niece is still upset by that!
