In The Attic
This was a children's book I illustrated earlier in the term, using Hiawyn Oram's poem 'In the Attic.' It was a really exciting project and one of my favourites so i thought I should post it! I decided to interpret 'the attic,' as a huge tree over a house boat. I used oil on paper which was brilliant as I loved the vibrant light you can achieve with it. Although the originals will deteriorate, oil on paper was great as it dried so much more quickly and could be scanned in. I enjoyed painting my glowing character and making the dummy book, I would definitely think about trying a similar style again.
