Eli, No!

I love this adorable set of of illustrations from artist Katie Kirk based on Eli, no!, a children's book designed by Katie. The story of one trouble-making dog, and the one word that isn't far behind, which she dedicated to her nephew Parker and niece Kiki (and Eli, the naughty dog of course). The book is yet to published...any publishers out there? Eli, no! is just so charming and would make an amazing bedtime story!

Love it! How about self-publishing (such as lulu.com)?

This is too cute!

Another vote for selling the prints - maybe on Etsy, with a link to the book on Lulu? I love the 'whining' drawing. And the food. And the one chasing a squirrel. Even the end/backcover page is lovely!

SO wonderful! I will definitely buy it when it's published.

great illustrations, bright and bold just the way kids like them. good luck finding a publisher.

I think they got the name wrong, that should definitely say "Milo, No!"

I would be the first in line to buy this as a children's book... my rambunctious son's name is Eli and "Eli, No!" is a common refrain around here.

So adorable! This will be a fantastic book. I would totally buy prints of the illustrations.

OMG! That book is adorable! I work for a self-publisher. We're a little pricey, but the books are gorgeous. www.wheatmark.com

But this isn't a plug ... I just really like this book and think it's ridiculously cute!

katie is incredibly talented, she & her husband run their own design biz here in mpls.... their menu designs make my fave neighborhood restaurant (blackbird!) even more delicious.

go katie!
