The above image is where I was working out some ideas for the cover of my new book and four new pages. Below that is the final pencil drawing. Later it was digitally coloured in photoshop.
My original version of my book title was " So, That's That! " which was an expression my dad used a lot. The new version I changed to "Scrappy Jack"with a different cover Illustration. I also added four new pages and changed the writing to integrate with the story.
When I first decide to write and illustrate a book of my dads life for his 100th birthday, it was a daunting task! But, I was determined to do it... in 1year, not knowing if he would live to see it. He did! I presented the book to dad and mom, in a quiet room were I could read out loud, without any noise distractions. A wonderful experience, what can I say... So, That's That!
