Here's a character I'm working on for a project... the top drawings are the newer designs and the bottom drawings are the old character designs.
I'm really interested in doing this story in pen and ink with limited colors.
I've been making it a point to incorporate text into my designs. In t-shirt design, text plays a big part in making the design successful so I figure the same should go for picture books as they are partners. I know you wont always be able to play around with the text but I think it's fun for now! :)
