Constructing the Red Wagon


Most of Red Wagon is double page spreads which is a lot of space to work with. I like to draw in a small sketchbook, smaller than the printed book, so I couldn't draw the whole picture on one sketchbook page. So I drew it in pieces and combined it later on the computer, this let me do changes as well. For instance the bunny operating the crane is in a different position in the actual book, and he is wearing a safety hat which is good for him. Things didn't go so well for turtle, he was replaced by squirrel, but maybe there will be a turtle in another book someday.
