Making a Dummy….

I’ve JUST read a wonderfully helpful article with photos on Kathy Temean’s blog about HOW TO MAKE A DUMMY!  all artists should take a look! http://kathytemean.wordpress.com/2012/05/15/crafting-a-book-dummy/

There are other ways of course, but this step by step might be SO helpful to start this process and better understand the format of a typical 32 page picture book as well.  Remember, a dummy’s purpose is to show off the fact that the artist knows how to ‘read'(conceptualize) a story visually.  It’s the page turn, the flow, the pacing of the story you are showing off.  Keeping the dummy clean and easy to work with helps.  enjoy!
