Though Larry Jon Davis' art for this book was very beautiful, there was a bit of a challenge for us to fit it on the cover—no fault of Larry's. His single illustration needed to span front and back covers, with parts of the hoop showing on each. However, the four boys on the left were positioned too far to the right in the original. The boy in the yellow shirt stood directly under the hoop, and would have wrapped around the spine. The random texture of the court surface presented a bit of a challenge to fill in the blank spots where the boys once stood. But Adobe Systems came to the rescue with a new feature of Photoshop called "AI [for Artificial Intelliigence] generative fill", which was able to automatically generate the randomness of the court surface to fill the gaps seamlessly and quickly.
Darlene and Daniel Swanson walk you through each step of this process. They pay attention to every detail to make sure your book ‘shines.’ This was a walk in the park compared to my previous experience. I highly recommend them—their expertise, their experience, their suggestions, and their grace and patience. The finished product made me say aloud – “I LOVE IT!”
