Happy to announce that "Rutherford B., Who Was He?"- written by Marilyn Singer, is in stores today! I've posted some images from the process and the final art from the book. Such a challenge to depict all the U.S. Presidents, who had really different legacies, with a similar visual tone. It is a great book to give kids a literary and visual hook to remember something from each of the presidents. The images create metaphors and environments that help illuminate their contributions to our history.
I always love doing cover sketches- a few other ideas for the final cover art.
|These created the impression the book was only about President Rutherford B. Hayes.|
|Really loved the one with the kid at the portrait museum.|
AND... some of the final art from the book! Hope you learn something.
And... the book trailer! Song by Nathan Talley!
