Bathtime

Bathtime

This is one of my favourite illustrations in the book. Like Betsy’s Ikea Antelop high chair (cheap and very easy to clean), the bath here was my own daughter’s, though she never made such a mess.

I’d originally intended to watercolour all of this book, but I only ever had a chance to work during lunch in the work’s canteen where paints weren’t really practical, so I scanned in the pencil on Bristol Board and colored them with my Intuos. Given the changes that Coco’s hair went through, I’m glad I had photoshop.
