Illustrating The Yellow Tutu, Part 6
Margo has decided to go to school with the tutu on her head. As she sets out, she imagines the effect her sunny headwear might have on her surroundings. In this spread and the next, I depicted her imaginary walk to school, rather than her real one. Here, she wonders "if she would make the flowers grow because she looked just like the sun." She moves from left to right, toward the next page, flowers growing huge in her wake.
Note: I ditched the bluebells from the sketch, to emphasize vertical growth.
