Each of the illustrations in the book started as a sketch. I then moved on to the computer and in Illustrator created the line work. Then I figured out the colors I would use, work out the shadows, highlights and any textures leading to creating a final file for use in a larger overall project.
Below you can view the inside covers, the final spreads and inside page samples from each book. After creating the illustration in Illustrator, I did the page layout design in InDesign. I kept the layout for all four books similar in design to help maintain a consistent and familiar readership throughout the series.
