Creating illustrations for  Captain Sneer saw a variety of ideas thrown around. Characters were introduced and deleted, viewpoints, compositional layouts and objects were added and considered before an eventual verdict often saw them scrapped.

As an example, I’ve trawled through sketches and scribbles from scene one to to show you its journey to final painting.

Captain Sneer the Buccaneer (RRP $24.99). Available in all good bookstores around Australia.
