So... work has picked up, so between that and some personal projects, I decided that I needed more to do. So, I enrolled in an online children's book course taught by illustrators Jake Parker, Lee White and Will Terry through the Society of Visual Storytelling. The first week's assignment is picking three established books and straight up copying the style of that illustrator. We have to do 4 characters, 2 props and 2 full page/spreads. Easy peasy.
This was very fun to do and makes you really look at how things were done, what choices were made and if you can figure it out, why those choices were made. I'll be coloring this one, as well.
This is from Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, of course.
