Do you want to see what one of my books looks like at the beginning?
Julie at the great Seven Impossible Things has posted a bunch of process art from The Littlest Family's Big Day -- click over for storyboards, cover sketches, etc. There is even more, but I pared it down to a good overview of what it looks like behind-the-scenes.
I love these two early cover sketches so much. I think they were the first thing I ever made, when the idea was just percolating. Anyway, there's a lot more to see, along with art from two other books, The Lizsts & The Bear Who Wasn't There included in The Sweet & the Surreal, a post from her Kirkus colum last week.
I love seeing the beginnings of things, all wispy and rough.
