A little color on the PIG book cover.


Screen Shot 2013-08-07 at 4.41.26 PMI just posted an update on my blog. I am showing the pencil rough of the Pig book cover and the now almost finished color. I still have to fix a few things and put in the heading. I have three spreads completed and five more in the line art stage. I have rough pencils on everything, so it should not be too bad to finish. http://wp.me/p2Av8t-5Z

A 32 page picture book is a lot of work as many of you already know. I’m finding as I go, my colors are changing slightly, now I must go back and adjust the earlier illustrations so they a little more saturated. I am trying very hard not to fall into the all bright and screaming, primary and secondary color trap I see so much in children’s books.


About Dayne Sislen, Children's Book Illustrator

I am a children's book illustrator and graphic designer. I love working with self-publishing children's book authors to help them bring their characters and scenes to life on the printed page. I have spent over 30 years in the design graphics, advertising and marketing business, working with some of the most creative people in the industry. I can take your story idea from character development to finished illustrations and printer ready files. I run on coffee, chocolate and colorful Post-it notes.
