[john peters]: The original story I proposed to Vince was of a rather chaotic Elementary School Holiday presentation for the teachers and parents. Instead, the story was built around details and memories supplied by Mr. Patterson, Mr. Sneed, and myself, which were altered to match the world as Pandora saw it. I experimented with Pen & Ink with monchomatic Watercolor washes on good Watercolor paper for this book, which made for a faster turnaround, but was much more expensive to produce.
