Here's the first illustration for Barbara Jean Hicks' picture book, which I'm working on in my spare time.
It's done in acrylic paint and colored pencil.
I used the maquettes mentioned in previous posts, which ended up being really useful. They freed me up to get much looser than I usually work and — Oo-wee! — did I EVER have fun!
Don't you wish
you knew the story?
