Full Color Sketches

Top squash in Gouache; bottom squash in Gouache wash and Conté crayon*

Buttons & Beads' storyline will be illustrated in sepia, and the parallel sidebar areas (describing American Indian ways of life) will be full color. In some instances full color art will illustrate the storyline as well. The same squash drawn twice (above) illustrates some style options for full color art. *Fun fact: "Gouache" (a kind of opaque watercolor) rhymes with both "squash" and "wash." It is pronounced "gwash."
