Sandra Dieckmann : LEAF

Children's Books

Commissioned | Professional

Brief:
Harriet, the editor at Flying Eye Books, and myself talked about ideas for picture books in the beginning. It was a very playful start and we were considering different things I had written and bouncing ideas back and forward. When writing for a twelve spread picture book word count is limited and so the time for the narrative. Fitting text and pictures was a big learning curve.
Additional Information:
Leaf is created using an array of mixed media. I worked in pencil, pen, watercolour and gouache as well as ink. After I paint and draw all my elements the spreads were composed in Photoshop and cleaned up there. I really enjoy working in this collage way as it allows my maximum freedom and it's easy to make changes to colour and composition any time.
