My last painting for art school, at least this time around for my Bachelor’s in Illustration.
Who knows what will happen in the future now, right?
And that is the point- a little tea, a little catching up on my breath, then adventure.
With #edwinthemouse from start to finish.
(Don’t roll your eyes, but I totally have “The Breaking of the Fellowship” Lord of the Rings OST track going in my head. I am refraining from saying “there and back again yet” because I want a lot more of going “there” to come before it is time for “back again.”)
Once in a while you sell your soul to a project. This children’s book project for my Book Publishing class may be my favorite project up to this point. As in, ever, in or out of school. I hope I write well, because creating the entirety of this story and designing the visuals made me so happy.
These are pencil comps for a book dummy that we will complete in my next class.
Meet Sophie and Rinn (the mer-boy). Edwin my mouse is hiding somewhere, as usual.
The world of Story-dom is one I will definitely explore more. I already knew that, but it was nice to have that solidified for me through this class project.
He is a character that I thought of a few years ago, and who has made a few appearances in my art since then. I love him, and I’ve always been surprised by the almost affection people have shown him.
I have plans for after graduation this summer. One of them is a webcomic for Edwin. I have fought with ideas of stories and books, but the comic idea is the current favorite, and where it seems that I want to start.
I think Edwin is something significant. I wonder what he’ll be up to next.
