Illustration is very challenging and exciting. When I was younger, I thought that one could start an art career by illustrating children’s books and gradually work your way to the fine art-gallery world. Alas, this is not true. In fact, for me the opposite is true.
I have had a pretty good go at the gallery scene, but I would still love to get my art in books. That is why I still produce illustrations on a regular basis, in hopes that one day soon I will once again get up the nerve to attempt getting published. That would be awesome!
Here are a few illustrations I made for the “Little Bo Peep.” nursary rhyme. To see more illustrations, click on the lower illustration gallery on the right.
Here’s a little bunny I made in celebration of the new year. It was created using procreate. Looking forward to seeing what 2016 has in store!
As a test of skill as a storyteller through pictures, I did some sets of nursery rhyme illustrations. Here are three from Little Bo Peep.
