Colorized

So, this is sort of what I have in mind for A MOUSE IS IN THE HOUSE...

What it comes down to is that large-format black and white saddle-stitched books are no longer going to be available. It makes sense that there would be little demand for them; most picture books are in color. I could just have the same b/w book published as a color book. It would look exactly the same but cost more!

Therefor, I'm playing around with colorizing the pictures with simple (digital) washes as in this picture --- a bit of a comic book-like technique. I think it could work. It does mean pretty much assembling the book over again but then I'd been thinking of coloring it pretty much from the start. And I did intend to create my next picture book this way so it's a bit of practice.
