Hmm, I may have to work on some more lettering, that was fun stuff.
Run jack run!
Need to work on your porfolio?
Take 3 classic fairy tales and illustrate 3 scenes from each one to tell the story:
1. Illustrate one for the board book market - simple shapes, bright colors, easy to read. Here is a tip, the character size doesn't change in a board book.
2. Illustrate one for the picture book market, which is usually 3-6 years old. Only put a twist on the fairy tale, mix it up, place the story in an unlikely setting, etc.
3. Illustrate one in an early chapter book style - black and white, for 1st-3rd grade. Bonus points if you create a mock-up cover for the fairy tale chapter book.
