I recently shot these whimsical panda filled tableaus for my illustrator friend, Katherine Killeffer. For the past two years she has been working on this wonderful sweet book, “Love, Daddy,” all about the love between fathers and daughters. Katherine needed some images for the book’s website and Kickstarter page, so she enlisted my help to capture the book’s spreads and illustrate the process that goes into making a children’s book.
From the brainstorming stage, to storyboards and pencil sketches, to pen and watercolor renditions, we highlighted each step of the book’s creation, with plenty of pink and spunk along the way.
The Kickstarter for “Love, Daddy” ends on Friday, so if you are interested in supporting Katherine’s project (and snagging some adorable swag), head on over to the Kickstarter page. And learn more on LoveDaddyTheBook.com
