This is a slimmer version of the last book i worked on aimed for the youngest readers so the text and illustrations inside are simpler. This version is not the one that was used. The one used have different colors + RUN DMC and Chuck D is not in it. But i prefer the version i post here.



The sad thing is that this specific book series has a design-template with set elements which looks pretty bad. I decided not to include it here - Big yellow boxes with huge texts.

What do you think?

Sorry for my semi-flippant reply (working without reference is my likely unrealistic 'gold standard').
All to say: awesome, as usual. Smile

I really like this. Definitely prefer your version to the one used (saw it on your site) - though I'm surprised either way that the publishers didn't mind Eminem flipping off a target audience of 7-9 year olds. Kids these days!

Thanks, guys Smile Well, the other version had brighter colors. This one is more muted, but moodier. The publisher thought the other would be more appealing. It probably is, but i still prefer this one:)
