I always find it very interesting to see how an idea develops all the way to a completed illustration. Quite often there are lots of steps involved, and the initial idea can change and morph several times before getting to the finished product. Looking back at my notes, I hadn't originally planned for the tapir to be pulling at the tree and I had also envisaged the puppy to be sat on the tapir's back rather than being ready to jump. The caption of the illustration also evolved as I was painting, and nothing really clicked apart from 'You got this!' My boyfriend then suggested, 'We got this!' which was the absolute winner!
