A rather a late post on the May release of 11th book in the Go Girl Relaunch series "Birthday Girl" written by Meredith Badger and published by Hardie Grant Egmont. Today is MY BIRTHDAY so maybe today is the perfect day to be posting about this???? :)
Big 30th for me! Feeling very old.....
Go Girl relaunch series are re-release of the old Go Girl series, which has been a really successful hit by the young girls. So Hardie Grant Egmont decided to republish the series with a totally new look, ie. re-illustrated by ME, and they have been releasing new titles since 2011. Above was the original illustration used for the cover of this book.
Using the original image as a reference, reading through the book and with the guidance of the lovely editor here are the work process for the new cover illustration.
Once the cover is approved I moved onto the internal illustrations. Below are some roughs.
