Both Edward and us here at the office have been waiting to show you this illustration for the cover of the book "Wooden Bones", the story of what happened after Pinocchio became a real boy.
The author, Scott William Carter was very please with the artwork "It really captures the right mood for the story." The book will be released in August 2012 but is available for pre-order from Amazon here.
Here is what Edward had to say about his process: "Thank you to Laurent Linn of Simon and Schuster for the great art direction and cover design. . . The sketch process was a breeze because of all the fun elements I had to work with. The most exciting part was figuring out how a puppet-turned-boy might look."
