The Power of Collaboration
This isn’t just another Picture Book story, this is a story about locals joining forces to keep a promise to a young boy.
When Steve Coleman (local author) told me that he had promised to have the Cat’s Whisker printed by Milo’s birthday it left me only 5 weeks to transform his manuscript into print ready artwork. With the 7 week lead time required from the printers there was no margin for delays.
So what did the 5 weeks consist of I hear you ask…
- Character design
- B&W book dummy
- Cover Design
- InDesign Layout
- Output Print ready files, and
- Liasing with Printers for final adjustments
All in all an epic, enjoyable and trully fulfilling experience. Not that I would want to make a habit out of it, but it does show what can be achieved when like minded creatives share a common goal and work in unison.
That’s all from me for now,
