What Do Vets Do? - illustrations for a non-fiction childrens book

Rough illustration sketches on my drawing board for "What Do Vets Do?" by Emma Juhasz.
I am in the process of illustrating a book about vets for children six-years-old upwards. The book will have 48 pages of: information about the kinds of vets there are and the equipment they use; interesting facts about animals; information about how to become a vet in the UK and some activities. It was written by Emma Juhasz and will be published by Mighty Shepherd Publishing.

I will be updating this post as the book progresses, it will be published in June. In the meantime here are some more rough sketches.

I have learnt a lot while working on "What Do Vets Do?" including the fact that elephants can swim!

Update: after completing all the roughs, and having them approved by Emma, I created the illustrations and put them into pages.

If you look carefully you will see a mistake! It has now been corrected.
All the illustrations have been done now, put into pages, checked and rechecked and artwork sent to the printer.

My print out of the front cover.
Very soon a printed proof copy of the book will arrive and will be checked for mistakes then the book will be published and available to buy.
