Chocolate Socks!

I recently received a package in the mail!

Even though I’ve worked out each page’s layout though thumbnails, sketches, and eventually the coloring, you never know exactly how the finished package will look in the book form. It is always fun to see the finished project, and to open a freshly printed book for the very first time.

Chocolate Socks, written by Holly Durst, is a book about children following their dreams.

This book was a lot of fun to work on. The scenes weren’t always defined, so I enjoyed creating the backgrounds and events. 

Here are a couple of the finalized sketches, and what they looked like after they were colored.
