Done!

Here's what I've been up to this semester - a children's book about a little girl who dances with her toys and imagines being in far off places. I think it still needs a lot of work - but I am happy with where I got to at this stage. Hopefully this will get a mawling by the tutors and can be 110% improved for Macmillan next April.

Dummy book:


And a couple of random spreads from it:



And here are the colour spreads I did - ended up doing 5 although usually they ask for only 4:





*Sorry for the photo quality - Can't get the white balance quite right - will try again with Sunshine's advice once he's home.

That's it for this term, and this academic year - apart from presentations tomorrow, and some paperwork that needs filling in for next year's dissertation; I'm mostly done with college till October ... phew! Just a wedding to organise and the rest of my life to plan out ...
