baby blu, thank you!

Project No.: Illust 123

This picture book was inspired by my little girl Isla Rose, and is based on a favourite toy of hers. The book tells the story of a small blue elephant who does things the way she likes regardless of what anyone else tells her she can’t do, and by anyone else I mean her brothers who constantly say she’s too small to do this, and too weak to do that. I’ve included initial sketches and some finished colour pieces, all done in ink and water colour pencil on bristol board.
