11 - From the Finished Pile
7th June 2013


This piece of artwork comes from my finished pile. You may wonder why the background is white. If you have seen the first book in the series, Nat the Cat's Sunny Smile, you will know that some illustrations in the book have a flat colour as a background and this is one of those.


When I take my artwork into the publishers next week, we'll look at all these kind of pictures that appear in the book (there are about seven) and decide which colours would look good with each picture. The designer then digitally adds in the colour and prints out samples for my editor and me to OK (or not OK). These background colours add a good contrast to the fully illustrated ones.
