Upside Down

photographing illustrations tiw math in nature series

I’ve gotten used to flipping my artwork on its’ head, and crossing my fingers that everything sticks accordingly. That’s certainly the case every time I go to Toronto Image Works to get my children’s book spreads photographed. Here you can see the set up: lights, camera, magnets, and me with my x-acto knife and two sided tape, ready and waiting for any fly away pieces or unsightly cast shadows!

This past Thursday marked a milestone for me: completing the artwork for “Shaping Up Summer”, the fourth and final book art in the Math in Nature series.

A big thanks to TIW technician and talented photographer, Stephen Brookbank, for his skill and patience in photographing a total of 56 spreads and 4 covers with me over the past year and a half!
