Book Update 2
Still working on the Tortoise and Hare pictures. Obstacles I'm currently coming up against are making the style of the drawing consistent (pencil lines looking quite smooth on some of the characters and quite rough on some of the others - neither is a problem as long as they all look the same) and coming up with colours for the various animal characters. The reason I incline so naturally towards monochrome is because colour is one complication too many. Having the chicken running next to the hare on page 1 is fine when the pictures are in black and white but having a brown chicken running next to a brown hare is too much brown.
