TAKING BACK TOAD HALL! Bookmark Art Process By Zachary D. Coe

An illustration from an excerpt of "The Wind in the Willows". I chose to do a scene that, as far as I could tell, has never been illustrated. This is the scene where the weasels have taken over Mr. Toad's mansion and Toad and friends have to sneak back in and reclaim it. The scene describes the weasels ransacking the house and having a huge party.
Not only was the bookmark an extremely small space to fit everything (final size with bleed: 2.1” x 8.1”), but to do a scene with multiple characters and try to keep everything readable was a big challenge! Hope those 'Wind in the Willows' fans enjoy this new scene!
