I was inspired by German short storybooks to create ‘picture book’ like illustrations that would add a modern fairytale twist. To start an illustration, I would discuss the individual short stories with the client and then create sketches to match the visuals discussed. The line drawing for this series is analogue and the colouring digital. The fence on the cover art was based around the idea of being within and outside of the cultural ‘norm’ and challenges the readers to think about what is within, and outside of the ‘fence’.
For the design of the book, I wanted to create a traditional looking book that would both work well as an E-book and physical copy.
