Over the last 18 months I have been working with children’s book authors on an exciting new project. Together we have been developing a whole range of fun new characters, then illustrating the pages, and putting the sample books together. The books were sent out to various focus groups, edited and then sent out again. We are now at the stage of gaining endorsements before submitting to publishers.
The book is aimed at young children, following the main characters and friend’s on their outdoor adventures. This encourages exercise and the use of imagination whilst appreciating the surroundings and identifying wildlife.
Initial sketches were made in pencil and watercolour. The final illustrations have been created on an iPad Pro using Procreate, with further work carried out in Adobe Photoshop and InDesign.
I can’t give any further details or examples until it goes public, but will add more as soon as I can.
