Start of final (maybe!) work in progress

So I needed to give some of the final kid’s book artwork a go, and I have been working on pages 6-7 literally all weekend. I had to put something up here to show my hard work but bear in mind these things:

a. I failed on the ‘bleed’ (ie leave 5mm around the edge because it might get cut off) front. oops!

b. I still need to put more images on so it doesn’t make complete sense yet

c. Train isn’t quite finished yet

d. The writing needs redoing because it is hard to read

e. I was lazy and repeated images I probably should have completely re-drawn…

f. It is possibly a bit too chaotic, might need to take some elements out if people think it’s a bit unclear to understand

Apart from this little(!) to-do list, I’m fairly happy with this start. I think it shows fairly well how I generally want the book to look and I think I’ve worked out some problems for future pages (you’ll probably have to click on the double page image to see it because I don’t think WordPress really likes its width… ) :
