“Thief of Always” is horror book for kids, I’ve been listening to audio version this week. It resembles a bit Pinokio’s adventure in happy holiday country. The little girl you can see in this picture will turn into a fish soon. This fan art piece was made just for fun of smearing paints on smooth surface; I have found another piece of coated carton.
She has travelled all the way to tropical beach and the ground still freezes under her. Too bad. Once you’re a Groke, you are Groke everywhere…
This drawing has developed itself, so to say, from left to right. I have started with the jungle – I have had a practical reason to do draw some exotic greenery – but then Groke has arrived.
I’ve got an e-book lately about J.W. Smith and her illustrations, and this drawing is definitely fan art! No exact copy, but there are many elements borrowed. In original picture there’s a boy playing with blocks at home and watching woods outside. Interesting thing is that letters on his wooden blocks say: LAS and DOM (“woods” and “home” in Polish). Did the famous American illustrator know? Or is it a coincidence? I was truly surprised to find familiar words from my own exotic language there.
Ella book is finished – 22 pages! The longest book I’ve illustrated so far. Another book is on horizon and there are two children poems to illustrate, for Mira. One picture per poem – when compared to Ella project, this should be simple. But first I have joined a fan art contest on DA and this is the result. The lady’s name is Victoria, the octopus name is Otto and they are Brian Kesinger’s characters. I saw them doing lots of things together but I’ve never seen a picture of Otto taking Victoria down to his home.
