Where's Charlie?

Where's Charlie?

some double page spreads from my children's picture book (WIP) 'Where's Charlie?'. as of yet, the full set of illustrations is un-finished and ultimately unpublished. 'Where's Charlie?' is a story about a little girl who loses her pet rabbit Charlie. i'm actually more of a digital artist (as you can see from my website - http://www.jadeboylan.com) but the pages for this were put together entirely by hand using mixed media, collage, hand-drawn/coloured elements, 3D details, miniature carpets/wallpaper patterns from Dolls Houses, paper-cuts, beads, ribbons, fabric swatches etc. i wrote the full story myself at college and have since set about illustrating it using my own characters. my plan is to eventually finish illustrating the story and hopefully one day attempt to get it published or maybe just print a final copy to give to my young god-daughter on whom the story is based.
