Ruby and Oliver

Today is a very good day! I can finally blog about this because my contract has come through from Walker Books - my very first picture book will be published in early Spring 2012 (and another will follow). Hooray! I've been working on roughs and on the story with my editors and designer at Walker since May of this year, the original idea I brought them was "Ousting Oliver" which is a few posts down.
A lot has changed and all for the better. The colour palette has brightened considerably, the characters have more "character" and the story has much more depth.

Here is one rough, I'll be putting up more along the way. Stay tuned!
