The author for this picture book in the works, David Jal leaves for Sudan to visit his village today. He will dig a well for his village. God’s speed! We pray he has a safe journey. There is still unrest in South Sudan.
I’m working on the picture book about one of the Lost Boys of Sudan. These are very rough sketches made to figure out composition, page 2 and 3. We have no photos of him as a child, but he has nephews I can reference to make a guess. I arrange huts in a way that is balanced and interesting.
The pages 4 and 5. On the left a boy herding cattle, a river and the village is behind. The right is school under the trees, since there is no building. There is going to be many people in this book. People in the distance will be sketchy.
