Grayscale (No Stonepeople here)

In preparation for the NJSCBWI conference, I'm working on updating my portfolio as well as getting pieces ready for an illustration workshop. Here are a couple illustrations from the Nanny Piggins book series. These are specifically from the first of the series. It was originally illustrated by the Caldecott winner Dan Santat.

In some ways, grayscale images are great since I don't have to focus on colors matching. Only value. Value though can be tricky and it's very easy to end up with a gray blob of a piece. It was still much fun though and I hope at some point in the future, I can do more of these MG illustrations!
