Creepy Carrots! words by Aaron Reynolds, pictures by Peter Brown is another new book that doesn't really fit into the Halloween area, but is a great addition to the "not-so-scary" story area.
The illustrations for this book are rendered in pencil on paper and then digitally composited and colored.
I heard Peter Brown speak recently at the ALSC (Association for Library Service to Children) Institute 2012, and he was very personable and shared his process with us. I always like to peek into the brain of an artist and see how their mind works.
Check out Peter Browns's Website for a short video on Creepy Carrots! I admire the pencil work and the shadowing used. It helps give an even deeper scary affect to Creepy Carrots!
