The drawing on my next book continues- steadily plowing through fields of chimney soot, icy winds and hungry rats of 1820's London. In the current radio silence, enjoy a few blurry pictures from my book signing last week. Mobile phone cameras are the new polaroids. A warm thanks to all the kids from CCS school who came out to the signing!
My son, Jack, (in orange stripes and panting) wasn't excited at all.
I showed the process work for the cover image, version A sketches on the right and the revision ideas on the left. Many folks are astonished at the amount of 'behind-the-scenes' drawing that takes place in a project like this.
Kids books can only be seen one spread at a time. So I always find it neat to view a book like this, where you can see the whole thing at once.
Jack really wanted to sign each book with me. I compromised by letting him scream continuously.
