Board Book

I finally decided the cover design for the board book, It's Supper Time!

This is a book for small children. A little boy is shown feeding different kinds of birds and in the end having supper himself.

The linocut technique made me choose one bold line out of my pencil sketch that generally had a lot of uncertain lines. Sometime I can distill the essence of the drawing but sometime I loose the important line while tracing the images for several times before I get it drawn on lino. It is tricky!
But I started to pay more attention to each line through using this method, for sure.
