The Story of Fidgety Philip: process

Here is the process from pencil to the final four-color screenprint of ‘The Story of Fidgety Philip’.

The story is about a boy who refuses to sit still at the dinner table, eventually grabbing at the tablecloth and knocking everything to the floor. This page faces the text for a different story in the book.
