Waking Up The Farm

At the SCBWI Canada East conference I attended earlier this month, all of the illustrators had a pre-conference assignment. We were given the manuscript for “Wake Up, Rupert!” (by Mike Twohy) by Simon & Schuster’s Art Director, Laurent Linn. We worked on our sketches leading up to the conference and gave each other feedback. We then brought our final illustrations to the conference for critique. Below is the spread I chose:
