I announced a little while ago that I'm working on my first children's book and promised to grant you a peak into the progress. Well, as you can imagine (and see) it's a lot of work, fun though. I lose myself in bringing the characters to life and enjoy inventing the place they live and the adventures they experience.
In the photo you can see what goes into making one illustration, sketches after sketches,
than tracing the lines in ink. After this phase I take a new piece of
paper and fill in what will become color later in black on the lightbox
with a fine brush. Both line drawing and brush strokes will be scanned
and put in color on the computer.
