Children’s book project…

During the past six months or so I have been working on a children’s book project, where I am the illustrator of the images. This project has nearly reached the end where my job is done. And, I have been careful not posting any whole images, and still cannot do so but I just wanted to give you a little sneak peak to what I have been up to.Collage These are only a few of the illustrations. I am working with the author of this book, Anna Slyter-McCune, very closely. And it has been a very interesting journey I have to say.

It is not the easiest thing to come up with the images, without having some sort of guidelines from the author. I need to know what she wants, and how she wants it – that’s where the illustration brief comes in handy.

Since I have been working with this project along side my normal day to day job, it has taken a bit longer, basically only having the weekends available as my art time.

I have to say that I love teddy bears, so this project has been really enjoyable.

What will I do next? Well, the inspiration is always there and I am working on a few things outside this project. I did manage to finish the boat picture I was working on and you can see it here. If you would be interested to have a print of this image you can easily get it here: http://fineartamerica.com/featured/beautiful-harbour-eva-ason.html
