I am illustrating a children's picture book.
the manuscript is a rhyming lullaby with a Key West setting.
Ahhhhh - Key West -
I'm seeing bright primary colors - lots of color.
Using my trusty Storyboard template,
I break the manuscript down into the pages.
I will use page 3 for the "title" page and page 32 for "the end" page.
That leaves me 14 2-page spreads.
I want to have a full page illustration on one side and
the text along with an small illustration on the facing page.
There is a passel of animals, fish & fowl in the story -
so I've collected some reference photos of
Key West critters to go along with the landscape photos I already have.
