Behind the scenes of my latest book

12 Oct 2018

 

Now that my book, 2019: Nature Month by Month has hit the shelves I can share some of the rough drawings and processes with you. 

 

I loved working on this book, partly because there was quite a tight turnaround with it. Slightly odd, but I really like getting stuck in to a project properly and I feel that producing this book has done wonders for my workflow. It also made me a scheduling ninja as I juggled several other projects at various points in this book. I'm really happy to say that I managed to get the finals done ahead of schedule too. 

 

I thought it might be interesting to show some of my pencil roughs alongside the final piece. What do you think?
