All the illustrations were sketched out in pencil and then inked in black ink on standard printer paper.

Then, I scanned each image using my Epson Perfection V37 scanner and added the colour in Photoshop.

I used InDesign to plan out the pages of the book, add the text and create a high resolution, print-ready PDF file for the printer.
