When two projects meet

When two projects meet. Someone at the exhibition thought that my Story Builder transparencies were supposed to go on top of the prints from my book Sorry and I was happily surprised with how well they match. It was lovely to see people engaging with my work and it’s good to know that children have played with the Story Builder as well, as I had only shown it to adults before the exhibition. I’m going to develop it further the coming year and hopefully will find a way to publish it as well. #evaelandillustration #sorrythebook #storybuilder #risography #flatgold #yellow #imamistake

A little sad

What a wonderful week it has been, full of friends and family visiting and reading as many books as possible from my fellow graduates. I tried to read them all but I’m afraid I didn’t manage. Here my dear mother and sister are in front if my stand reading my books. I feel blessed, to be surrounded by so many friends and family. And a little sad now I’m finally realising this adventure of studying the MA Children’s Book Illustration is really coming to an end. I’ve met so many lovely people - and have been guided by very inspiring tutors as well. I shall miss it all dearly and am at the same time looking forward to the next adventures. And there still is the International Children’s Book Fair in Bologna where I’ll have my work represented at the Cambridge School of Art stand with most other graduates. #machildrensbookillustration #cambridgeschoolofart

Creativity and me

Another project I’ve been working on, about the creative process. Do you ever feel nostalgic about the time in your life where you would just draw, without thinking, as a child? I wonder sometimes what happens when I let her be in charge. Maybe my ideas would be more obedient, like this lot here, and just follow her. Hopefully I’ll manage to have this book ready as well for the degree show next week. Check @csacbi for more details and artwork by my talented fellow students. #creativityandme #creativeprocess #risography #flatgold #characterdesign #picturebookillustration  #machildrensbooksillustration #cambridgeschoolofart

Colours

I may have gone overboard with the colours of my newest project. Sorry. I’m ready to bind this book finally, let’s hope I don’t mess it up as I don’t have many prints and am not sure if I can deal with any risography anymore this week. Come see the final book at our degree show next week at Candid Arts Trust Gallery in London. Check out @csacbi for more info. #sorrythebook #evaelandillustration #risography #neonpink
