How sick is Mr. B?
It’s a story about an 8 year old boy named Maxwell who wanted to be a magician.
He learned magic from his neighbor who used to work as a magician & traveled all over the world to entertain people. Until a sudden incident happened to him.
Veronica Blake the author of this series, wanted to concentrate on the children’s reality & focus on issues such as cancer, incarceration, homelessness, etc.
At the beginning I read the story over 10 times to imagine the layout of all the scences so I can match the flow of the pictures with Veronica’s words. Then I did a brainstorming to how the characters will look like.
Thumbnails is a general idea of the written words, so when I started to draw each scene, I realized how much details I needed to visualize them & that was a challange!
NEED A STUNNING ILLUSTRATION?
“I remember when I was a kid I used to fill the last pages of my student notebook, with stories of my imaginary friends, who were simply stick figures. I wasn’t thinking how good or creative the characters should be, rather I was expressing my feelings & visualizing them.”
