Meet Eduardo the bear. In my exploration of children’s book illustrations, I’ve come up with this cuddly character. He’s quite a contrast to Gary The Dragon.
I am really enjoying having a go at illustration. I’ve always seen as it as something of a dark art, so creating a couple of characters of my own has pleased me greatly. As a complete beginner, I am happy with the simple nature of my drawings, but I must say I have a massive respect for professional illustrators!
I quite like the black and white look of this front cover idea. It reminds me of the books I used to read when I was a child.
I’ll have to share some of my rhyming story texts with you soon.
