Poem Commission

I was commissioned to illustrate a poem written by the client. The poem dictates a journey through life and was a gift for a Christening. The poem starts off by describing life as a path and this sparked the idea of a line that would run down the side of the text depicting this path with different elements from adventures such as dinosaurs, hot air balloons, mountains and cars.

The client was keen to use a colour wash and line work and it works really well with the style of illustration and the white line work. This was a combination of watercolour and vector line work composited in Photoshop and printed on 280 gsm fine art paper at A4 and framed.
