We love books! To celebrate World Book Day, we wanted to share some of Nick Butterworth's wonderful artwork. So here are a couple of his concept sketches for 'Groobie's Spacewash' published by Walker Books. A glimpse at how he creates the layout for his beautiful books :)
Nick says, "One of my favourite parts of the process is visualising. It allows me to work quickly without having to pay too much attention to detail and this is what helps to create dynamism - a sense of movement, even when the image is static. It was also nice to have the opportunity to create a starry alphabet for the enlarged capital initials. My overall aim was to create books that are proper picture books in themselves, rather than just spin-offs from the show."
Look what they turned into! Magic!
