I have been working on the cover, end-papers and title page for Bears on the Stairs, while I wait for my feedback on the rest of the roughs.
This was my first idea for the cover. The Editor liked the two lower bears, but wasn't keen on the big one 'batting' the title text. This is my re-draw:
For the endpapers, I though one big picture might be fun, rather than the little spot repeats of characters that I often do. I don't know yet whether we will have full colour or just single colour, but this is my idea:
If it's single colour, I think just the linear drawing would work quite well, maybe reversed out, as white line onto a strong colour.
