I’m not going to share my whole story, but I thought I would show you a couple of pages of my Swimming Dragon book now I’ve passed my MA in illustration. I wanted to do a children’s book with the story pages looking like black and white lino cut prints and the opposite pages in full colour patterns that could represent dragon scales or other ideas. The idea was to give children a look at abstract, complex art and pattern, together with an adventurous storyline that would lead them through the book. I want to try and get a spark of creativity released through the book. I hope this makes sense. I hope I can work out a way of publishing it.
Part of my MA final major project. I have ordered a printed copy but it might not arrive in time.. It’s just good to have the pages. Some of them came out wrong, the image files on two pages were corrupted but I can sort them out. Fingers crossed it will look good!
