More than 5 years and 5,000 hours in the making, every page is lovingly and creatively crafted. From A to Z, each letter of the alphabet is rendered as a mosaic of line-art cartoon-style illustrations, objects and characters whose names begin with that letter.
To illustrate this, the 'A Page' (shown below) includes an Acorn, Airplanes, an Angel, Animals, Ants, an Apple, Ark, Astronaut, Antmobile, Artsy Ant, Ant Alise and Austin Alien, all visibly hidden on the page. On the opposite, facing page is the list of items
to be found within that letter, and the exciting adventure stories of Artsy Ant and his new friends.
Each illustrated letter includes colorful characters, such as Eddy Elephant (on the E page) and Shawn Shrimp (S page), with a brief parable, along the lines of Hans Christian Anderson or Aesop. Through Artsy’s developing friendships with the other characters, kids discover encouraging lessons about appreciation, learning, self-confidence, friendship, sharing, living their best life, and much more.

How was Artsy Ant conceived?
When Scott Howard was young, there were moments when he told himself "I'm going
to remember what it was like to be a kid". "Artsy Ant Alphabet Art Adventures" is the realization of that childhood promise. Influences included comic books, fairy tales
and Saturday morning cartoons. In college Scott majored in Art (illustration and graphic design) while developing an interest in psychology, positive thinking and the power of our minds. In the creative world, Scott became well recognized as a successful graphic designer and illustrator. But it was his vision for a unique children's book, combining most of his influences, interests and artistic talents which would redirect his life!
While working on the art and concepts for the Artsy Ant book, Scott met Sandy Harper, writer, author, speaker and creator of the powerful self-development company Gratitude Boot Camp. Scott attest, "Artsy Ant Alphabet Art Adventures would be much less impressive without the collaboration with talented story writer, Sandy Harper."
Artist and writer, creativity and imagination, each sharing a desire with Artsy Ant to 'Creatively Inspire Kids of All Ages', all over the world.
As a speaker, Scott presents fun, entertaining, memorable, 'Creatively Inspiring' stories
which promote empowering lessons about happiness, the power of our minds, chase
your dreams, dare to be different, live your best life, and reminds us "When you
believe in you, your dreams can come true." Memorable stories can provide valuable encouragement to children, teens and adults, all trying to find our way in the world.
