Illustrated Song

click to enlarge

Here is an illustrated song book I did a couple of years ago for Creative Teaching Press.

I do a lot of tweaking after I scan/photograph my work (photoshop) and every time I see this book, I see all the things I would have "fixed" on my end. Cringe city.
(I was having trouble photographing the art and had to send them the originals.)

Like, moving the little bird and egg up so the text wouldn't cover it, overlapping felt where it shouldn't, stray hairs and fibers, forgotten stitches etc.
Still, I learned a big lesson with this project.

Get really good at reproduction on your end and retain tweak control!
