With The Perfect Little Monster I moved away from water colour and crayon line and began using ink line and digital colour for the very first time.
It's interesting for me to look back on, because for this book I almost completely abandoned my traditional water colour look in favour of flat, bright colours. Gradually my work has moved back towards a traditional look, even though in actuality it's still heavily digital - and I still use plenty of those early graphical tricks when necessary.
Ink line with digital colour.
