Update: Painting on My Children’s Book

Mar 21, 2013 by Damon Eckhoff in Children's Books

Book Painting!

I’ve completed a first draft of the book dummy in both black and white and in color.  It’s really looking great!  I’ve been getting positive feedback from my friends and peers.  Victoria Jamieson (who taught my children’s book illustration class at PNCA) has be gracious enough to provide some detailed feedback.

Right now, I’m taking a critical look at the story structure and deciding what I need to tweak.  I’ve decided to take a brief break from the book.  This will give me a bit of space and distance so I can see what needs to change when i come back to it.

So far… I think it looks fantastic!  Thanks for everyone’s support!
