Hmm. Why is my name on the cover of this book? It seems like I did the least amount of work of everyone involved! Thanks to all of the illustrators and especially to Deb and Bekah for all of their help in turning my text and pencil sketches into a magnificiently beautiful finished book.


I love how you combine electronic and hand drawing. I do most of my work in Illustrator and Photoshop and I think it loses some of the visual interest. The drawings look pretty flat and dry. Yours have such a lively feel.

Thanks again for the behind the scenes look.

Wow, impressive marriage of technical and manual drawings!

Deborah Robson

I'm delighted to hear that you folks like the resulting drawings. And Donna, you give me and Bekah great stuff to play with. It always takes longer, though, than we think it will! I'm sure you've noticed that. . . . I try to "estimate long," and then something always comes up. As long as we make the final, final deadlines, it works out.


Wow - that is a really really neat usage of Knit Visualizer & other tools! I also really like how you combine the hand drawing with the computer output to create something better than either could by itself. Thanks for going into such detail on this, it's really fascinating to read.
