A bunch of new illustrations I’ve been working on for my children’s book project. Here we can find our hero in a pretty different setting: the big city!

I’m still not entirely sure about the colours/composition in some of these, but it’s all a learning process.

Some more curiosities and trivia about the things that inspired these images:


- The city is primarily inspired by two cities in Venezuela: Valencia (my home city) and Caracas (the capital). It probably is more heavily pictured in Caracas.
- The ‘mural’ of the two aztecs in the building by the right side it’s actually inspired by a real mural I saw in Mexico DF. 
- I like to think that the guy in the black suit and black hat is Jose Gregorio Hernandez, a Venezuelan physician who many people in Latin America attribute miraculous qualities.
- There are some cable cars on the left side. These in itself can pretty much be the cable cars that take you to the Avila National Park in Caracas.
- One of the billboards shows a bottle alongside an indigenous chief. This is kind of my own crappy ad for ‘Cacique’, Venezuela’s most famous rum. 
- The houses on the hill were inspired by the ‘barrios’ that cover many hills in Caracas. Although not a spectacular sight from up close, they always caught my attention and can look very fascinating from afar. I merged elements of mediterranean houses too, most commonly mountain towns like Deia or Valldemossa in Majorca.
- Also, the design for some of the hill houses are inspired by the “Villa Planchart”, a Venezuelan house positioned on a mountain top in Caracas. Itself a house on a hill, this is an architectonical masterpiece and one of my favourite things ever. You can find out more about it here.
- The flowers you can see are orchids. This is Venezuela’s national flower.

I started compiling a playlist of really old school Latin American music, which makes about the perfect soundtrack for this story. If you’re curious you can listen to it here.

I think that the moment our protagonist finds himself within the city, this is the song that would be playing:

Illustrations for a homework.

I had to illustrate a tale and make it a children’s book. It’s about a Grimm’s tale named ‘The Bird, the Mouse and the Sausage.’

Been hemming and hawing about how to show this project! Last weekend I took part in Linework NW and I promised myself I would make a book! So that turned into an accordion book all about a mermaid named Ondine who collects bioluminescent creatures.

This book was created start to finish in six days. My first accordion book since 2003? Whoa! Now I want to do more! Many thanks to my student Wren who helped me cut and fold them in time. I’m going to see about making a little video to show this better, but in the meantime this will do.

More personal projects, more books, more stuff! I am working on a big project but I need to share more and make more little projects.
