Really nice Bernhard. I am so glad that lineup of characters came back, and the simple front cover with the round earth and the wee duckling. Love the blue/yellow contrast. Your work is always so detailed and yummy. Is that a hand done backgound wash on paper with watercolor?

Bernhard said...

Yes, Leanne, all my illustrations are hand done.

Bernhard - this is so wonderful! I love these characters, they each have so much personality. I love his bum too, that vantage point was such a good one! I do hope you got to use that somewhere else in the book!

Neat characters and as always beautifully painted! Good stuff!
