Bob Staake: From Sketch to Finish

Here is Bob Staake's "How I do a Spread."

Above is, as you can see, is his rough for WE PLANTED A TREE by Diane Muldrow, which is coming from Random House this spring.

You can also appreciate how much actual, physical pencil-on-paper drawing goes into the heart of the rough before Bob works his PhotoShop magic.

I love learning the working methods of illustrators of Bob's caliber. And I'm grateful that from time to time he will share some of his behind-the-scenes process.
