Sketchbook Project 2012

Okay time to make the longest scrolling post I can today! I finished my sketchbook project just in time toget to the post office by the end of the day. It means my final product looks a bit more like a color comp but I’m happy with it. I didn’t compromise any page, no spread was simplified in the base drawing, I just did my watercolors REALLY fast. It’s a sketchbook right? It’s not supposed to be perfect. Unless you look at most of the other submissions, people take this project to an incredible level. Such as Emily Grandin or Alina Chau’s from 2011 or Gina Perry to name a few.
I didn’t procrastinate getting my book done this month, the procrastinated happened over the summer. I waited to finish it when I was scheduled to the max! I couldn’t let myself not complete my book. So, I didn’t sleep last night and missed a few meals today but it’s done! This is how it looked as it went out the door.

Monochromatic: Where did the other colors go?!

I do realize a couple of my animals aren’t the appropriate sizing in comparison to each other but, I wasn’t trying to be perfectly accurate.

  1. Casey,

    I came across your website. I’m a children’s writer. I really like your illustrations, especially how you draw animals. I can see we share a love for nature and animals. I’m also an environmental engineer. If you get a chance, stop by my blog and say hello.

    Sincerely,

    Ken Major
