Started work this past week on a recipe book for a new client. The recipes are inspired by various fantasy books, so the illustrations are more along the lines of vague interpretations of various characters or scenes from works of fantasy literature. A fun project so far, and I’m expecting to do somewhere in the neighborhood of 40 illustrations for this project.
I am about 3 days from finishing up the ‘Who Was’ project that I am currently working on, and this past weekend, I also began work on a new book project that I’m excited about. This is a new client, and it will be a recipe book inspired by various works of fantasy. I’ve done four rough sketches so far for a book that will probably have about 40 or so illustrations, and today I started with one of them just to nail down the look and style of these illustrations. I may or may not also be doing a greyscale wash like the sample below. Below that is the rough sketch. More to come as this project continues.
