Wow John... you drew all that!
I take my hat off to you :o)

And my next book is going to have simple shaped characters on a white background... instead of complicated scenes with a cast of thousands, so I know a little how you feel. (Though I dodn't have to be historically correct!)

Yes.. I never realized how complicated doing historical picturebook illustration might become. All those details!

Oh well, it gives me something to do at least.

John, I love these drawings! SO fluid! SO wonderful! Are you sketching in normal media then scanning or sketching right on the wacom? I ask because they look so loose.

I just ordered the Cintiq--hoping I could sketch right on to the tablet.

Glad you like them, Barb.

I just sketch in pencil on vellum... my favorite drawing surface is the Bienfang 100%rag translucent marker paper.

Then I scan them into the Photoshop 'beauty spa'.

Each single page is made up of dozens of scanned in 'bits'. Then I arrange them all like a collage to arrive at the finish drawing.

It's more fun & flexible that way.

UGH, John I can so feel your pain, I hate bikes!!!! (and wheelchairs:)

The work (and the amount of it) is just Super!!!:)

Barb, you ordered the Cintiq!!! I loved that thing when I played with it in San Fran years ago at a cartoonist convention. You will have a BALL with it, John, you NEED that!!!
