A few people have asked how I created the art for the book.
Not sure it was the best way, but here it is.

I sketched out the entire book as thumbnails (small rough sketches). There I worked out the final words and compositions to make sure it read easily and flowed well.

Pencilled, lettered and inked all the pages by hand. I could have created the line in Illustrator or Photoshop, but I think a hand drawn line has more warmth. I also find it easier to keep energy in the drawing with a pen or pencil.

Scanned the inks, cleaned them and then colored them up in Photoshop, using the brush tool for shadows and highlights.

The mixture of traditional and digital probably has something to do with my generation too, I expect.
