As with the previous post, I am not sure which of these books is ‘volume 1’ or ‘volume 2’ or whatever, but I’m calling this one ‘volume 2’, as it is the 2nd book I’ve managed to get my hands on after two decades. There are still two additional volumes of this set, and I’m on the lookout for those, and shall post samples when I manage to get my hands on them.
I did not do the cover on this one, and the volume of interior illustrations was a little less than the previous book. In this one I just did two large illustrations for the start of stories, and a full page ‘upside down’ illustration for a poem. As with the previous book, the style relied heavily on my cartoon style, which comprised of india ink outlines, colored with Philip Martin dyes and colored pencil (on a bristol board).
Good examples of what my cartoon style used to look like in the ‘pre-digital’ days.
