Note: I am writing a story/journal that I don’t want to show before it is published in full. These are some of the illustrated pages in the sketchbook for the story.
Preparing pages to tell a hand-written story is a whole different process.
Colorful and splashy sets off the writing.
I also, how to unify the entire “book” is different from when I am simply using a journal.
So there is a design element involved.
I am enjoying this so much!
