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. 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
Here is another picture I have been working on for the coming winter and holiday season’s. This is an owl dressed up with his warm scarf and hat.
Hope you have enjoyed seeing my recent works, I am hoping to have more updates at a later stage. Enjoy your weekend everyone and stay tuned.
