Book design and character development.

I'm over halfway through my course on book design and development through the makeartthatsells.com site. The course is run by artist representative Lilla Rogers and Art Director of too-many- books-to-count Zoe Tucker. The advice and help has been stellar. Especially how to pitch a book and what's important to art directors of books. 

 

Week 1 - pick a script and start drawing the character.
