Jarrett J. Krosoczka is back with The Ostrich Conspiracy, the second installment in a fast-paced, action-packed, and hilarious middle-grade series featuring two platypus detectives, perfect for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Big Nate, and Lunch Lady.

The opening of the Kalamazoo City Dome—the world's largest indoor amusement complex—has everyone in the city buzzing, especially because it's going to be the shooting site for Chase Mercy's new blockbuster film. But that's when things start to go haywire. Who would want to sabotage the Dome, and why? Detectives Rick Zengo and Corey O'Malley are on the case!

Review:


From Sketch to Final Art: Platypus Police Squad #2: The Ostrich Conspiracy By Jarrett J. Krosoczka

1) Sketch on iPad: I create my sketches digitally on my iPad because I travel quite a bit. If I’m on book tour and need to send sketches to my publisher, I can do so from anywhere—even a Wi-Fi-equipped airplane!

2) Finished Physical Art: After the sketches are approved, I move on to creating the final artwork. To do so, I use a special shade of pencil called Non-photo Blue, brushes, India ink and Bristol Board. I keep my sketches loose, focusing on the major shapes of the characters, then dip my brush into ink to create the final line work. Drawing with a brush will create a dynamic line—as I apply pressure, the line work will go from thin to thick. When I scan in the artwork and set the computer to scan at black and white, the computer won’t recognize the pencil marks from the Non-photo Blue pencil, just the finished black linework.

3) Photoshop Screen: The physical artwork is then scanned in to my computer and everything gets shaded in Photoshop. I modulate the lighting in separate layers. I also shade the characters on a separate layer from the background, just in case I need to digitally edit the characters to be elsewhere on the page. 4) Finished Book: Finally, the illustrations will be placed alongside my words in the finished book!
