The Pages of Sam. Rubbed The Lamp, and Then...

The brief for this publishing project asked for artwork for two square, facing pages of a picture book.
The story is about a full colour character called Sam who lives in a black and white, tonal world.
Sam always wears a particular t-shirt and bright red converse baseball boots, I was given the freedom to design all other aspects of the character and environment.
I was asked to illustrate a double page spread for the story with the text 'Rubbed The Lamp, And Then'.
