Bee and the bears

Bee and the bears

As part of Claire Alexander's picture book course, I have created a black and white picture book dummy, which is a twist of a very popular fairy tale. It is a twelve spreads picture book. I am now in the process of producing the colour pictures and I am presenting here some of the research drawings. They are watercolour, ink and pencil studies of some elements of the story: a child and some bears.
