picture books


Today, I completed what has been about 8 weeks worth of work for my Illustrating Children’s Books course. Having already made a small book called ‘A History of Cats since 1985’, and a few character ideas for a bear called Spectacled Henry, I wanted to create a complete kid’s book with a story.
The finished book, called, ‘Hello! What’s This?’ is in fact a 16 page illustrated book about an Owl that discovers something unusual. Printed on to card, and folded to make a super long concertina, that folds into a cover, it’s a simple story aimed at the picture book market. I look forward to presenting it to my tutor at my last lesson tomorrow and I hope I can get a complete picture showing all the pages soon.
