Soooo another book to sell on eBay!!
This book is actually my first ever book that got published…so I should have posted this first then the other one…but oh well.
This book was a collaborative project along with my dad. I did all of the 63 illustrations of the animals and birds in pencil crayon. It was when I had just moved out, so renting out a small shared basement, I didn’t have much space to work, nor the right tools to do them…but after many revisions and trying to finish them in between my job at the time, I got them done and was pretty happy to how they turned out.
Again, my dad did all of the writing in Japanese, and I did the layout in InDesign. It was my first time using InDesign, but knowing a bit of Photoshop and Illustrator program, I managed to figure out the program to construct an entire book from scratch to the final print production. It was also my first time going to the print press and checking for colour and such. Very exciting It was printed at Nathan Printing in Burnaby.
I’m not too happy with the design since I’m more into white space and simple layouts, but it was what my dad wanted…so I did what the client wished and thought was appropriate for the target audience.
*note: this book is only in Japanese
