top secret book….still secret.

…..illustration by Jan Dolby

..for the past year I have been illustrating a top secret children’s book…which is still top secret.  Here is a sliver of one of the pages of the book….all the illustrations have been done in Photoshop with the help of my favourite friendly Bamboo tablet.  Many coffees, hand cramps, hours sitting at my computer…..after all that I think it’s going to fabulous when it’s completed. There’s a magic tree, a dog, a cat, a couple of kids and many handfuls of candy throughout the book.
