I recently started a side project called SwitchLit, which is a place that combines animals and literature to educate and inspire. I’ve designed characters based off of famous authors and create products featuring those characters. Currently, I only have tote bags for sale but I plan to offer a variety of items in the near future. I’ve already started sewing baby shoes and hope to have those available to sell very soon.
Each character has their own bio as well as information on the author. For example: http://www.switchlit.com/shakes/
