These are the things I think I've decided:
1. The book will have a square layout.
2. I'll keep the illustrations in a sketchy style. I've been approaching drawing with an "I'm learning and will someday draw these pictures in an AMAZING way" attitude. But I think if I don't just get going with what I'm doing now then I'll pretty much never finish the book, especially not in time for Add's birthday.
3. I'll probably forgo doing any kind of watercoloring--mostly because I can't seem to get it to look right. I'm going to keep at trying to learn how to make watercolors do my bidding so hopefully in the next book I can do some more fancy-type illustrations.
Here are the 2 finished-ish pages that I have done. I'm not 100% sure what type of font to use. I like font the bottom page because it looks a bit more handwritten and might go a bit better with the sketchy-ness of the illustrations. But I also think it might come off a bit gimmicky?
Likewise I think the font on the top page might come off too formal?
I'd love to hear any votes about the fonts :)
