Sam jumped out of bed

Sam jumped out of bed

A double page spread about the adventures of a character called Sam, working to the phrase "Sam jumped out of bed, and then...". The brief specified that the character had to be wearing a particular striped jumper and red converse shoes but all other elements were open to interpretation. I decided to make my Sam character a chameleon, choosing to experiment with the patterns on his face, the crocodiles skin and jungle plants. I created the piece by scanning painted sheets of paper into photoshop and assembling them digitally.
