Henning Lohlein has a new book out that warrants further investigation.
Just published in Germany, "Humphrey Rabbit",is a detective story set in 50ies Chick-Cago.
Originally the book was planned with black and white illustrations, which then soon became full colour.
But by then I had worked out that monochrome pictures would work the best to set the story in the time.
So I just added one extra colour to keep a uniformity to the illustrations, without going full colour on every picture. And this is the result...
The book went down very well, so I just started working on the follow up!
A big thank you to Henning on giving us the 'low down' on his Germanic gumshoe.
