The Woman Who Wanted To Eat A Child

The Woman Who Wanted To Eat A Child

These pieces were created as part of a university project. We were asked to create pages for a picture book about an evil woman who decides one day that she wants to eat a child. She searches everywhere for the perfect child to eat and eventually ends up eating her own, and, upon realising what she's done then goes out in search of a child to love. For these pages I used a combination of ink, pastel, colouring pencil, collage and digital media.
