Commission for a little canadian fabric shop. The whole composition is based on the original tales. This work really exausted me, the worst part was balance colors and composition, but at least i’m satisfied. Some zoom on the single character may help you see better all the details :)
i did this piece a while ago for a friend’s first solo-curated gallery so i think it’s okay to post :O!!! it’s a big one. the theme was “quiet moments” and i wanted to depict the wonder you feel as a child when it comes to exploration and the unknown at one of the quietest times of day (5 am)
“In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines
Lived twelve little girls in two straight lines
In rain or shine
They left the house at half past nine
The smallest one was Madeline.”
-Ludwig Bemelmans, Madeline, 1939
I would like to share a sampling of the graduation project that I had so much fun illustrating! It’s an old series, but one of my childhood favorites. There has been a TV series and a live action film, but never a modern-ish animated feature, and it was a bit of a passion project to imagine what it would look like, down to the character designs and the actual scenes.
Also, I might have some good news to announce soon… keeping my fingers crossed in the meantime! ♪
These are my submissions for the SCBWI’s Narrative Art Award. The prompt was to unfold a “mystery” across 3 illustrations. They were to follow the order of Dilemma, Conflict, Resolution. I chose the B+W middle grade route.
Haven’t done much work for this audience in mind in a while, so it was interesting to get back into that headspace. Hope you enjoy!
Here is the cover and a small sampling of interiors from the upcoming children’s book I illustrated called Pop! written by Jason Carter Eaton and published by First Second. The story is delightful, charming, and surprising and I really enjoyed fleshing it out with pictures. This boy’s determination seriously has no limitations- it’s crazy.
The book will be available July 3, 2018 and is available for preorder here!
