When LA Times Book Review called with a black and white job, I jumped on it. (no pun intended). I love working in black and white. Pushes me out of my reliance on color combos a little and I get to play with texture instead.
This was for a book set in Australia. The author's dad and his brother were always at odds. So of course, fighting kangaroos was the image that popped into my head.
I loved adding tattoos to the "bad" kangaroo. Meanie. :)
