I know myself

'I know myself' is a children's book dedicated to educating kids on safety, science, and learning to embrace confidence. I was tasked at illustrating the pages and cover, along with typography design and layout placement.

Various pages throughout the book. I used Procreate for all the illustrations.

My workflow

WHen I begin a new book project, my first order of business is creating characters for the story. It helps to begin visualizing what color scheme and scenarios these characters will be placed in.

Layout

Once I get a solid foundtion of character design, I start laying out the book with text and sketches. I also use a lot of reference photos to help anatomy and layout.

Color 

Once i get final linework and composition, I move on to laying out color. I try to keep in mind negative space and color theory.
