First Tea, Then Adventure

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.”)

Sophie & Rinn Children’s book

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.

Edwin my Mouse at Home

 

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.
