I have just started another promotional project. I plan on creating a whole pack aimed at young children (probably around 8-12 years) promoting London Zoo. The pack will include an A3 poster of which I have a mock up version above, and various other bits and bobs including an animal facts booklet, masks, stickers, activity sheets, cardboard lunchbox etc etc. I have literally only just started the project this week sooooo there's a lot to do! I want to get it completely finished over the Christmas break with a trip to London Zoo on the agenda!
Here is a selection of double page spreads for a children's book I have written and illustrated called 'Little Star'. I used gouache paint and watercolour pencil to try and create depth to make the illustrations feel more than just drawings. I wanted to show the strong contrast in light and dark, creating a friendly warm atmosphere even though it's set in space. I hope I've achieved that! I got quite attached to the characters when creating this book! Aaah I love being able to create weird and wonderful characters! Being an illustrator is pretty much the best thing since sliced bread (granary of course)...and coffee...
