7 blue birds

About a week ago I finished the spread for the colour blue. Blue birds, a symbol of hope from the ancient times!
When I visited the London Book Fair 2011 just a couple of days ago and showed my portfolio around, this was one of the pieces that stood out. It's one of my favourite too.

Katie and the Kite

With all the sun these days what better than to take out the ol' kite?
I decided to revisit Katie and the Kite, since I'll be printing a portfolio soon. I didn't change anything drastically, but with a fresh eye I saw some things which I wanted to improve. I generally desaturated some parts and brightened up some colours too. I find it "breathes" a lot better now. The illustrations always come out considerably darker when you print them too, so that was also a concern.

the fat bee

So I'm working on a storyboard for the "Just an Old Boot?!" tale, which is going great by the way, thanks for asking, but I felt like having a little brake from it, so I started playing with my digi-brushes and I came out with this little piece, the fat bee!

that was one long sentence!

Just an Old Boot?!

So this is the first image for a story I'll start working on.
It should be a fun, short adventure of a boot who thinks it's an animal!
In vain the animals around the lake, where the boot has been dumped, try to convince it otherwise.
Maybe a boot is an animal...?

I'll keep you posted!
