About the Book
Splotch Monster Island is an imaginary land where watercolor paint splotches come alive, and magical tales of kindness, hopes and dreams come true. The twenty Splotch Monsters featured in this book are from a collection of works that artist and educator Steve Loya produced during the Autumn season of 2020, and is influenced by the Stop and Smell the Flowers collaboration with his late wife Kris, from the spring of 2020. Illustrations of whimsical beasts interacting with wildlife that are common throughout north America, are accompanied by short stories that reflect not just the natural world, but human nature as well. Experience the magic and wonder of the fall season in Falling For Autumn On Splotch Monster Island, and hopefully, much like the characters in this book, you too will learn to find the extraordinary in the ordinary.
