DIGITAL ARTIST AND ANIMATOR
Licorish and Friends
At some point we all desire to create a book and for me it was a children's picture book. Though this book is not my story it has been very enjoyable creating the world that Licorish lives in.
The challenge I set was to create artwork that looked hand drawn and hand painted, yet completely digital. Even after deciding on character designs the book was illustrated four times before I was happy with end look.
It can be a very difficult task to escape the clean digital look, but when you do, it opens up a whole new world and you truly start to appreciate other picture book illustrators.
