Tian Tian and the Moon

Tian Tian and the Moon

These images are from a short book I wrote and illustrated called Tian Tian and the moon. I based the book on the pandas at Edinburgh Zoo, and how the female panda Tian Tian had to be kept under constant surveillance due to her possible pregnancy. I imagined that tired of being watched, and longing to be far away from her enclosure, Tian Tian climbs to the moon. I created the images using a mixture of Photoshop, mono prints and hand drawn elements.
