Pages from a detective book for kids






These were all sketched in pencil, inked, then scanned into Photoshop for greyscale tones. I'm still getting used to using my Wacom tablet (even though I've had it for almost two years now..) Eventually planning on getting all of the settings adjusted so I can ink on the Mac and be satisfied with the results.
Oh yeah, these pages were for a series of five children's detectives books called
"Bill the Warthog" from Legacy Press. 20 per book, all full page.

Hey, thanks Kristen!
It was great fun working with you
on the Bill the Warthog series.
Yeah, I'm thrilled to be illustrating full-time. I hope all is well for you
on your end, thank for commenting!

Hey Dave,
I hadn't seen the illustrations for the fifth book until today (Google Alert linked me over here). Looks good. But have you heard anything about when its coming out? I haven't.

All the best, Dean A. Anderson
