Wolf Song rough copy and art layout

Wolf Song now has images and rough layout for the copy! It is exciting to see the words and pictures married up. Now that we can see how it all works together, Tracy Cox (my book designer) and I can go over different aspects of the book such as: how the pacing of the book feels as a whole, what art feel redundant, copy that needs trimming down and does the copy placement work for each page? 
I am working on the cover image and hope to finish the sketches by today. 
Once we address the fixes my next step is to do small color roughs of all the layouts (similar to a color script used in animation) for us to visualize how color works over the course of the book emotionally and artistically.
