"The Amazing Skin They're In Book" is an amazing children's book project that Nikki Studio worked on the illustration step, Publisher 411 (the publishing agency), and Scott Linney - the book author. We took 45 days in total for all the drawing processes, from taking the brief from the client to completing all illustrations.

"The Amazing Skin They're In Book looks at the physical characteristics of animals and the terms associated with appearance. Children are given the means to describe what they see in nature and the ability to make comparisons. They also learn how skins are used in the products humans use daily. Illustrations by Nikki Studio will amuse and delight." (From the author's website)

And here we turn the sketches into full-colored illustrations:
