Work on Mark Burrows' book for Pelican Publishing Co. has begun!
After reading the manuscript, I do a very rough layout of the pages in thumbnail size.
This is VERY rough and very sketchy because it's just meant for me.
From this, I plan where the story goes on the pages.
Then, on the computer, in InDesign, the pages are layed out to size with the manuscript inserted.
Since these pages are a little more accurate, I can see the available space for illustration
and make adjustments to their content.
These pages are still very rough, but knowing the available space is my guide.
More accurate roughs, clear enough to be understood,
are developed and sent to the publisher for feedback.
So far, the comments are good for the content on these rough pencils.
Now, it's time to really draw some accurate, finished pencils.
Welcome to my blog! This is where I will post new art, news and current projects that are being developed. Enjoy!
