Drawing a Picture Book: the Artwork is All Done!



The last piece of artwork for Baby Goes Baaaa!, Nana Crocodile, who got left right to the end, has now been finished. I'm especially pleased with her croc slippers:


They have more than a passing resemblance to the chicken space-boots I designed for When You're Not Looking!.Today, everything has to be given a final once-over, then all the new pieces mounted up and wrapped up with the artwork I completed earlier, into a lovely big parcel and posted off to Egmont, the publisher. Fortunately, I know that at least Sarah, my designer, likes how it's come on, as she has been peeking at the progress, here on the blog (hi Sarah!).

Tried to leave a comment earlier, but obviously pressed the wrong button. Your day will have been manic but how satisfying to reach this stage. You - and your PA - must be very excited.
So welll done, and I love it all.

Thank you for your lovely comments - glad you like it! i=the book is scheduled for publication in April next year, with a sequel (not yet written!) in that summer.
