Under construction: a new book

The manuscript and rough sketches for my new book have been accepted, hooray! It will be published by Scholastic Canada. I’m excited to be working on the final drawings.

At this stage I collect reference to make sure all the details are just right. Sometimes I create my own reference. For example, I may make a 3-D plasticine model of a character to see how they look from different angles.  This book features a house that will be seen in several illustrations, so I had to build it. With pencil, paper, cardboard, scissors, tape and glue, the house in my imagination took shape. I’m pleased with the result, but can say I much prefer working with plasticine! Stay tuned for more work in progress…
