I sometimes do drawings like this as present together with the book. This actually for my grandmother. The reason why Brooks plays an electric guitar is that she doesn´t approve my main hobby besides the one I made my profession ( I love Stratocasters, but mine is sunburst not red) ….. This is watercolor and pencil.
Here is the link tho the making of the book:
By the way I just finished the Diercke Kinderatlas. Hurray!
The publisher (Lappan im Carlsen Verlag) I am working for has allowed me to show the sketches for the book I am working on at Illu16, which are also showcased at the exhibition. My original concept was to show how my pictures evolve. There wasn´t enough space to exhibit these stages, so I am showing this at my blog. This picture was made last weekend. First there are several pencil sketches. I put them together digitally and use this as basis for a drawing with ink and pen. I did a sperate layer using water colour but because I had to finish this very quickly I did part of the coloring digitally.
By the way, no dragons will be harmed during the making of this book (he is just a little sick and is transported to a doctor…)
