I know you’ve seen all the progress pictures along the way but here you can see the final full colour illustrations in digital or physical copy format. ‘What if?’ is a tale about a boy who explores the themes of friendship and acceptance by using his imagination and creativity. Through many vibrant creatures, Maxwell explores friendship of all different shapes, sizes, likes and differences.

New children’s book drafting!

Just an update to let you all know that I’ve done my drafts for my picture book and these are only thumbnails as I don’t want to show the rest of the drafts. Currently working on redrafting as there’s lot of room for improvement!

Hope you like these updates and once there’s more character design and colour designing then I should be able to post more!

The progress of page one and two of my new picture book! 

Good afternoon to you all! As some of you may know I am a selfpublished author illustrator and am currently working on my next project! There are some progress pictures of my designs of page one and two~ As i continue to do colour experiments I hope to find some support with this next project as I continue to keep you posted page by page! Each character and scene is designed to suit the story and takes lots of time to get the appearance and style of the book.
