May be I should have posted the roughs first...Nah - do that later. I've completed that B/W commission I got from A&C Black. The story is written by Beth Chambers and is aimed towards 14-16 year olds who have a low level reading ability. So the text is fairly intermediate. However they wanted my illustrations to be mature enough for that age range. They said they wanted as little of grey as possible due to the dot-printing method. The story involves a group of friends. The main characters include Ella the sensible girl, her stubborn friend Josh and a horrid small witch-like lady named Ma Jessop. I might make last minute changes on these, (never know). Here are my best ones.
