Ol' Pigtoes Cover by KelliRoos Ol' Pigtoes Cover by KelliRoos
Materials: watercolor and pencil

This is the cover to my very first Children's book, Ol' Pigtoes. I have worked on this project for over 3 years and it's such a joy to see people enjoying it.

It took me forever to get the right composition and thoughts to communicate what this book contained. I have a few dozen sketches of ideas, but it boiled down to an arrangement with the protagonist, and beast Ol' Pigtoes/.

The cover was especially fun for me to paint due to the subtle shading on Farmer McBean's outfit and body.

To read more about my book, and purchase it, visit its website! Ol' Pigtoes
