So after the Children's Literature Conference I wanted to have a go at more of a children's book illustration. I dug through my old memories and remembered my first roller coaster ride and I came up with this drawing. It was right side up the whole time I was working on it until someone came in and turned it upside down. Suddenly the composition was much more captivating. Still I felt it was pretty stiff, so I made some adjustments for the final. The little guy screaming his head off is supposed to be me. I was so excited to get on the ride but once it had started I couldn't wait to get off! It didn't help that I had just barely had tuna fish for lunch.
