POETRY BOOK ILLUSTRATION – MIX MEDIA – Traditional / Digital… and more….

These are a few images I created several years ago for a poetry book which is something that does not come my way often. Poetry is the most difficult thing in the world to illustrate because the original source material is always so personal that when it comes to translate the poet emotions into something visual the end result ends up becoming very subjective.
Because of that, I knew I simply could not just do a regular drawing as that would be the easy way out and what most everyone does in this cases. Also because I knew that if I did it fully digital that would turn everything a bit artificial which contrasted too much with the poetry so the solution was to go with a crazy mix between : traditional pencil drawing / digital painting / digital texture work / photoshop “shapes” / photoshop “watercolor” brushes / clipart items ( like some silhouetes for example ) and then scan and mix everything in Photoshop, painting on top of that to give the final touch.

“BEWARE OF THE NOSE BITING MONSTER” : Page MAKING OF – Digital Painting Video Tutorial

Here´s a first glimpse out of a current project I´m now working on. It´s a childrens book written by author Jay Miletsky , called “BEWARE OF THE NOSE BITING MONSTER : A Cautionary Tale for Petrified Parents” and it´s a really great story; challenging to illustrate because most of the story is based on emotion and features only two characters but it´s been real fun to paint.
So for now, here´s a small making of video for one of the pages.

LITTLE WITCH

Here´s a few of the original sketches I did for a children book poetry project some years ago about a little witch which was going to learn to fly on her broom.

2017 has been the year of “impossible” projects for me.
After a book about a comet that had to look mostly the same from page to page and do nothing but fly, next came this one about “daffodils” based on a great poem that is the perfect example how poetry can be a nightmare to illustrate particularly when the text has nothing to draw from except repetition and emotion based content from the same mind-image over and over again.
Here´s some pics and variations for that project.
It was nevertheless fun but extremely challenging to do.
