GRRR!



Here is the cover (bottom of post) and a bunch of black and white illustrations from a children's book of poetry called GRRR! by James Carter and Graham Denton, published by Macmillan. Out next year!










I went a bit more nuts with the colours than I normally do, but it came out kind of fun! Below is a version of the art showing a behind the scenes peek at the rough edges that get cropped for the final cover artwork. It almost looks like I'm a real painter, rather than a conjurer of digital fakery!
