Another thing that I picked up at the publishers was the current Egmont catalogue. I did a week's work experience there last spring after I graduated and one of the projects I was set was to do some illustration ideas for the catalogue cover. It was a bit strange to start with as I didn't have any of the materials that I would usually work with. One of the designers there did have some charcoal and pencils so I used those to make black and white textures and then recoloured them in photoshop. I don't think it looks like my work but it was good to try something new! As you can see, Not Me! gets a page in the catalogue too....

While I was at the publishers on Wednesday I picked up a copy of the Dutch co-edition of Not Me! called Ikke Niet! I had to do the dutch hand-drawn text for this a few months ago....my favourite words were HANDAFDRUKKEN - hand prints and ERWTJES - peas.

and this is after!
I did a presentation about Not Me! to a sales meeting at the publishers yesterday. I prepared these images so that I could show the process of adding line and then have "one that I made earlier"!
