Where to take the project next…

I’ve recently been wondering whether or not to change the direction of my project. I’m going to switch focus for a little while and consider some other options, rather than children book illustration, for my story. I’ve always been more interested in environments, buildings and props when it comes to making (and looking at) artwork, so I’d like to explore that avenue a little further.

For the next few weeks, I’m going to focus on exploring the potential settings and overall look to the story, possibly imagining that it was going to be made into an animated film.

Part of me does wonder, though, whether I’m just shying away from the children’s book illustrations because they aren’t my strong suit…

I found this book in the library that was just the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen, and it’s definitely the initial inspiration and starting point for the new direction for the project. It’s the Disney Animation Studios, The Archive Series, Layout & Background book. I thought I’d share a few (ok a lot) of the pictures with you…
