The Kite Festival

The Kite Festival

This project was my Diploma Project during my MA in Children's Book Illustration. It's a 32 page fully illustrated story about the Indian kite festival Uttarayan. I developed it from original drawings I did on location and wanted to show children here in the UK what the festival involved and capture it's cheerful spirit.

It is created using gouache and coloured pencils and layering them up digitally.
