Covers, Spreads, Illustration Ideas, & Mood board :)
8 x 10 portrait
Book cost $31.95 plus shipping and tax.
I would like to get two books, it should be around $80 or $90 for both books.
UPDATEMy newest inspiration for the project came from the copy of Alice that my mom sent me. I will post my sketches this weekend, but I wanted to post my latest ideas.
I like the Identification of the owner, in this copy. I think that is something I want to incorporate in the copy.
As for my illustrations I have decided to color the character, and leave the b/g black & white.
I like the illustrations in this copy so I will probably use these, something like them or try to recreate something similar. I also think the dark edges of the pages create an interesting look.
My chapter headings and illustration are pretty self explanatory.
Covers: I couldn't choose just on so I redid two of my sketches. The color block one needs a little tweaking in proportion, but in general I like the idea. My other cover is more whimsical.
After much thought, and a good talk my concept is now complete. I'm making Alice's journal, the illustrations will be simple. Childlike be not sloppy and spread through out the book as if someone was doodling in the book.
So here's the latest dish, I'm feeling so far behind and that song under pressure in running through my head. So that said here are my posts for the moment.
As I was placeing them, I realized I need to create more. But they are 85% done.
The next two illustrations show, how I want to incorporate some color and a new twist.
More Dish, as of 9/7/2010
So the illustrations are above, and placed in text as if it was handwritten/ hand drawn on the text. I Have a pdf file that I can share that shows exactly how it works.
For the spreads, this is there basic lay out, this is an expert from chapter 2 .
