"My objective was to set my illustrations in 1956- the year the book was published and to make the illustrations reflect this in the styling of clothes and accessories and settings etc. I wanted to make the illustrations dramatic, cinematic and give the animals personalities. I also wanted to make the puppies as pudgy and as cute as possible in contrast to Cruella DeVil."
