I am currently working on the first pages of the book. With the numerous teddy bears in this opening scene, drawing attention to the main character was challenging. She’ll jump to the front of the spread when the background will come out flat in the final print. I am hopping to achieve an interesting rendering of the bears as some will get printed while others will be illustrated in pen and watercolors. Also the color scheme as seen in the following picture will be almost monochromatic, apart from the girl and her beloved teddy.
