If you had your druthers, what would you do?
My first picture book as both author and illustrator is now available! The idea for Druthers came to me ten years ago but it took many years (and, arguably, fatherhood) to get the book right.
Here are some images from the long journey:
Original cover concept from the pitch dummy.
Another cover idea.
Pages from the sketch dummy. The basic structure of the story is the same from the dummy,
but we expanded the build-up to the ending.
Various character sketches. Fortunately, I have very good source material running around the house. This book is dedicated to her.
