Loving Baby Louie Page 2

LovingBabyLouiePage2

This is one of my favorite illustrations for David B. Currie’s Book, “Loving Baby Louie”. I like this page so much because of the unique lighting and shading. Usually I add those final effects in Adobe Photopshop, but this time I did everything in Illustrator, which was an interesting challenge. Doing shading and lighting is my favorite stage of children’s book illustrations. It really brings the image to life.
