Here’s a sneak peek of my book!!! I’m so excited because I think I will be able to finish 9 of the 12 double page spreads for this Tuesday, the last day of Spring Quarter.
I hope all my hard work shows, when I do my children’s book “master-post” you’ll see all the work and careful planning a children’s book takes.
What do you think?
I’m not dead, yet!
It’s time for finals at SCAD! I made sure to take a picture right after having a cup of coffee. :) This is also me, pre-monty. You guys at SCAD know what I mean…
I haven’t made a post in a while, so here are half of my renderings for my children’s book:
I have so much left to do!!! Illustration and design in general is a lot of fun and a lot of hard work, but trying to write and design a children’s book in 10 weeks is quite the creative work out!
So much thought and careful planning went in to this book and I have to rush and finish. I’m definitely going to come back to this after the quarter ends, I know my book needs more attention. But I will be sure to post some spreads that are finished next week!
I’m also going to make a master post of the whole process!
some sketchbook stuff for my children’s book.
still working on characters.
the little boy is just always unhappy lol
In honor of their 200th anniversary Taschen Books recently published a new volume of illustrated Grimm fairy tales. It’s something I’m taking a lot of inspiration from today. And let’s face it, I can never get enough of the beautiful vintage illustration.
The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm is a volume of two dozen classic Grimm Fairy Tales all together with illustrations from the original publications from 1870-1950s.
BUT CHECK OUT THOSE SILHOUETTES. HOW GORGEOUS.
(My birthday is 4/2)
Nothing much to show right now, these are from my sketchbook.
Trying to figure some color stuff out.
The kids look so goofy. hahah.

Here’s the second page of Molly’s character actions, I shoulda posted it with the first one! But once you post it, you can’t go back and add more photos, you can only replace.
This page is my favorite. haha
One thing I and my professor noticed is the uncertainty of age for each character. (I had to do these actions for each of the other characters, too. I’ll post them later) Another thing is I drew Molly and the other characters a little differently in each action. Which is ok since each one is a quick 2 minute sketch. I just need to really focus on how each character will look, and I need to keep things consistent.
And feedback is always maaaaarvelous!
I’m already attached to Molly.
