Got a commission to illustrate a story for a magazine. The story is a simple and effective one, how a small kid inspired and adult to take risks and see life as an adventure and learning curve. My pastel/muted colour choice was influenced by Dan Clowes, and the old school Hannah Barbera Cartoons, where flat colours are used very effectively for character design, backgrounds and storytelling. Will be doing a few more projects with these guys and will post up the results. Been a while since I did narrative illustration and enjoying coming back to it, it mixes my love for character design with storytelling. Full size illustrations can be seen via the link below.
