Inside Pages

This is an in-progress children's picture book where I shot photographs around my home and office (which I used as backgrounds), illustrated the dogs and then inserted actual photo textures of dog hair in the outlines. (The dog on the left actually has my own dog's fur in it!) This is a book about fictional dog products.

Book Graphic

The Authors wanted the graphic to be easy to follow, visual and contemporary. I used icons to signify the categories of the factors and subtle numbers showing each of the steps within the categories.
