storybook











I have really been concentrating on "storybook" illustrations as of lately. My ultimate goal is to one day illustrate for a children's book. I  had the opportunity to start on my first children's book a few months back but the aesthetic of the book wasn't something I would be interested in, so it fell through. I have a small collection (growing by the month) of Beatrix Potter books that are my main source of inspiration for everything. These were my favourite books as a child and I'm truly nostalgic about these tales. Doing simple illustrations like these really keep me creating... It's nice to let my imagination take flight instead of drawing things as they are. This excitement of autumn seems to have me longing to make more little watercolours full of forests greens, yellows, oranges and pale pinks!
