My images combine a traditional, off-beat pen-and-ink style for line quality with digital ink and color. This unique style serves to illuminate the warmth and lighthearted energy of the story and its characters.
My son's love for books is testimony to how vital the ritual of family reading is in the fledgling years of child development. It is my hope that Checking up on Daddywill inspire parents to seize those passing yet vital moments with their children.

Adam Roth has created a book that captures the joys and overwhelming love of a parent for their child. It should be a "must read" for new parents. Not just for themselves, but for them to read to the children. It will help demonstrate just how much this love bonds families together. The story has humor, but it also has the magic of parent/child relations. It is a very important book for families to read together.
