....the only modification by the editor was to "turn the boys head, so the apple looked more 3 dimentional." Jodie has started to transfer the other approved images to her watercolor art board, in preparation for the finished full color pages in this book. It will take her sevral weeks, about a month, give or take a week to complete the book. I will be posting one spread (2 pages) of the completed artwork.
The book will be forwarded to the publishing company in stages. This allows the graphic artists to begin their work in scanning and composing the lettering that goes on each page. If they had to wait for the Illustrator (Jodie), to complete all of the artwork, it would be difficult for the graphic artist to complete their job and still meet press deadline. This book will be printed in China, (we have no choice in this matter). The color separations will be forwarded to the printing company in China and it will be their responsibility to complete the printing and binding of the book by late August for shipment to the warehouses of the various book stores......look for the full color page posting of one of the spreads shortly.
