So flickr has made some major changes… I’ve been too busy to have a proper look yet, but I really do like some of the updates, such as the gallery layout (pictured above). I’m really not fussy over the slideshow with the annoying pan and zoom stuff – it certainly no longer works for the purpose I was using it for, but haven’t had enough time to look into if that can be manual adjusted or not. (EDIT: ah hah! ! found the way around that horrible powerpoint-like slideshow!) More importantly, their changes have broken all my slideshow links, which means I now have to go back through about 100 posts and update everything. sigh. 



This post is part of a series documenting my process of illustrating the picture book Dream Boats (author Dan Bar-el, pub. Simply Read Books). The entire series of posts is archived here.

View a gallery of all the work-in-progress images including first sketches, reference material, mistakes, redraws, and tests, to final art at a much larger size, here.

  1. Thank you for sharing your process. You draw beautifully and posses the solid, old-fashioned drawing skills that I was starting to worry the world no longer nurtured. Brava. I am inspired, yet again by the beauty and detail in your illustrations.
