The Making of the Illustrations for It's Duffy Time!

QUESTION: How did you get Duffy to pose so perfectly for your illustrations??

ANSWER: I didn't. Since Duffy refused to cooperate with the posing, I gathered together all of the most pertinent Duffy photos, collected over the thirteen-and-a-half years he has been with us, and pasted them all onto 17 large sheets of cardboard. Here are three of those 17 sheets full of photos.

I used these multiple images of Duffy as references to draw and paint the illustrations of Duffy in the book.

Here are some details from three of those large sheets of cardboard.
