Updates on the picture book!

Hello lovelies! It’s nearing the end of senior year so plenty of things have been hectic within the past month, I’ve recently done a presentation for the True North Youth and pitched to publishers as part of the Salisbury Writers Festival! Currently waiting on replies and planning some marketing plans for the book,  however struggling under school sorry for the lack of updates! However I have some images to share of the concepts for “What If”

May happiness be with you all!

 Hello friends! sorry for the lack of updates, currently working in a competition piece for the watershed art prize however I don’t think they allow pre-published works so you’ll have to see it when it’s done! Besides that just practising on some colouring for my new book!  

Final scans of key scenes of “Who are you?” 

These scans are the key scenes of “Who are you?”. These are only a few pages out of the 18 within the book. Mediums are watercolour background, pencil on top with outline in pen.

Forest scene where Lucy gets lost, where will she end up next?

  

Entering the mushroom kingdom, what will the villagers do about Lucy now?

  

What’s behind Lucy? Is it a bird, is it a plane? No they’re faeries!

  

Breaking out of the frames scene with a sea theme. Inspired by my trip to Seaworld Queensland, where will Lucy end up next?

  

Lucy has found someone, who will he be? Find out more through reading “Who are you?” and see a friendship unfold!

 

“Who are you?” Self published children’s book colour testing

Before working on the picture book the colours for key scenes were tested first! The book has changed from the first testings but the colour scheme stayed quite similar~

Come along and adventure in the world of “Who are you?”
