fisherman’s tale

In childrens book, Uncategorized on January 15, 2011 at 10:28 am

I have been working on ways to interpret one of the stories i wrote at university. The story of the greedy fisherman is one which i think has potential as a fable for little readers and so i am trying to re work the images to make them more friendly and sweet and soft. 

so i have tried to interpret it in watercolour- which i like, it is very delicate and quick to work with. 

and also in illustrator, which is VERY quick and satisfying. everything has such a lovely clean finish to it, which can put some people off i huess. but hopefully the textures are helping to make it less “vector”

i am also working on some gouche painting for a commision- i love how gouche makes colours so nice and smoooooth.

off to broadway market in a bit so maybe i just have time to paint before i leave.

also i am on twitter now  so please follow me. i am trying to get the hang of it.
