How did you make this work:
When I read One Tiny Dot, I imagined an uncomplicated world, one which children would want to delve into with vibrant colours and simply-drawn, diverse characters. Also, the Dot needed to be the main focus on each page, so I opted for a pop of colour with the bright blue because it’s calming and represents peace. Lots of spreads use white backgrounds to help each scene really sing from the page.
