'Ready or not, here I come...'

'Ready or not, here I come...'

Here are a few full colour final artworks from a dummy book I’ve written and illustrated this year. The story is about a couple of monkeys who play hide and seek and through the process of searching for the Bernie, Marla meets and makes lots of new friends. Hidden recurring features within the book (such as the butterfly), allows extra fun and participation from the viewer. Using collage and pencil, I’ve been able to create colourful and vibrant illustrations which reflect the happy essence of the story.
