Re-assessing the pacing sometimes leads to other re-assessments, like re-tooling page content. This is where one must determine within a page 1) what new content to create to better suit the newly re-organized text, 2) what may have to move to another page, or 3) get deleted altogether. This can be an extremely difficult process, especially when one is emotionally attached to every object, every vignette, and everything one has drawn. The pragmatic side of me also doesn't want to waste any of the drawings. But when text is changed on a certain page, so too must the accompanying images as they may no longer match.
Take a look at this pic, which I use time and again as an example. The top image shows the original layout for the page corresponding to the introduction of Ben. I included him in the scene because in the text I have just introduced him as a character in the story. In re-evaluation, the imagery of the 3 sheep scenarios is actually quite strong, and therefore, is enough to focus upon in a single page without having anything else in the picture. So I opted to take Ben out so that the sheep scenarios stand alone on the page.
But now I’m left with the “Ben scratching head” drawing that I cannot waste! Where should I put it? Look at the bottom image; what do you think?
