A Golden Book that didn't pan out...

These cover roughs were created for a "Lift-a-Flap" Activity Book that was cancelled when Golden Books was sold a few years ago. I was in the process of creating two books for them at the time they closed their doors. The other one was a Coloring Book, and I'm still hoping they publish it some day.

I always try to create clean, easy to read layouts for covers and story art so my contact can present them without a lot of explainations and misinterpretation. It also gives their digital colorists & designers the chance to start laying in colors and type. I'll work looser if I'm doing the pitch in person, but this client was 3,000 miles away.

Working a little tighter on layouts saves me plenty of hours when I'm creating the final approved art.
