2009.
Here's a little something I whipped up one Christmas as a gift for a family member who had recently had children.
The tale follows the child and his father as they take a walk with their dog in a new neighborhood.
My job was to illustrate the book, and with permission here it is, online for everyone to enjoy!
Inside covers are still a thing, right?
So the flag on the castle is a simplified maple leaf for two reasons.
1.) The writer loves the hockey team Toronto Maple Leafs.
2.) This is a Canadian book.
Because of me both wanting to keep it simple and having a very small time frame to get this done, the backgrounds were kept minimal.
IRL, the author had moved away from what he considered to be a really bad neighborhood and bothered to mention it in the book, so I made a crummy castle design complete with a garage!
I recall the colored line art being pretty time consuming
I don't know if many people do this world wide, but it gets pretty chilly in Canada, so the child rides with a blanket.
Sort of a visual gag that they live in the middle of nowhere. I used this background in a Curt and Tony comic once as well.
Yes, he is picking up poop. And the dog is proud of his creation.
Yes, the dog is pooping.
I dressed them up for colder weather but looking at it again, there is no snow, fog, or clouds. It looks like a warm day.
I use different colouring techniques for night time now, but hey! There are trees to the left of the castle now!
He gets a bed and a dresser. What more do you need in a bedroom?
I actually recall avoiding drawing the mother with her eyes open because I thought the IRL mom would say that she wasn't pretty enough or "why did you draw my eyes like that?" or something. This was an easier choice.
There was no actual back cover, it was left blank intentionally so that there could be personalized hand writing.
Anyway, that's one old project done and uploaded!
