This has been a bit of a crazy weekend, but overall it was rewarding. I just finished a 6 page spread for Underneath the Juniper Tree.If you’ve not read the totally scary, creatively amazing new breed of children’s publication then i encourage you to get a proverbial pencil and stab your eye or simply click the link above.
The image above is a small capture of one of the spreads. Picturing a mesmerized boy (or maybe he just has no clue what’s coming next!). The this is about 1/5th the actual picture and as you can see there’s lots of little dots and details. It’s not my usual pen/paper technique but all digital illustration while using a very basic sketch. The eyes are from real human eyes so it adds a unique subtle touch to the picture.
