Hooray! I just finished up my very first picture book. Thanks to the folks at USTYME who had faith in my abilities enough to give me the task of creating their version of THE TWELVE DANCING PRINCESSES. I especially want to thank my AD, Nick, who has mountains of patience and was such a great encouragement throughout the process of this book. I’ll be posting a few of my favorite pages soon, but for now, I’ll share a few of the early concept pictures of the concept work I did for characters.
Twelve Princesses, Twelve Princes, a King, an Old Soldier, an Old Woman and a bunch of supporting characters was an enormous task to create but it was so much fun dreaming up the world of our mouse king and his wayward daughters. I learned a lot and can’t wait for the next book I get the privilege of working on.
