This illustration was a beast! I think I've been working on it for the last 3 weeks, at least...and I've been thinking about it for a little bit longer than that.
A few weeks ago I did a little doodle:
It ended up being quite a good illustration - or, at least, for me - it was good enough that I wanted to send it out as my next postcard to children's book publishers. But I now needed to tell the rest of the story. What could I put on the back of the postcard? The obvious choice to me was either to show them in the plane or landing. I thought landing would be more dynamic, so I set about thinking about what that would entail.
