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!

Inspired by @jamies_jungle. Trying out his wall climbing pathos trick using those 3M sticky clips. #neonpathos
I didn’t realize Canada had a national bird until this project. Meet the Canada Jay (also known as the Gray Jay). This guy will be turned into a decal for @birdstudiescan 🇨🇦 Always a pleasure working with @johnlepp and the team at Agents of Good. 💫 #canadajay #nationalbird #jay #birdstudiescanada #greyjay #grayjay #excelblades #canadianbirds #paperbird #cutpapercollage #cutpaper #collage #torontoillustrator #bird #birdsofcanada #canadianjay
I want him to unlearn this.
This time last year, I was busy making babies (the cut and paste kind). And now it’s just a few more months until “Love You Head To Toe” comes out. 💫@owlkidspublishing . . #loveyouheadtotoe #babylit #babylitbooks #babybook #babybooks #papercollageart #cutpaper #paperbaby #picturebook #picturebookillustration

The Math in Nature series is now available in paperback! It’s been 6 years since Counting on Fall (my very first illustrated book) came into the world and I can’t thank @owlkidspublishing enough for taking that first chance on me. ❤️ (A little throwback to author @lizannflatt and I signing books at @torontowots 2012.) . . . #mathinnature #mathbook #countingonfall #shapingupsummer #sortingthroughspring #sizingupwinter #mathinnatureseries #papercollage #cutpaperartist #cutpaper #kidlit #kidlitart #kidlitillustration #seasonsbook #owlkids #wildlifeart #wildlifeillustration #cutpaperillustration #picturebooks #childrensbooks
