Hello!

Rouge est la couleur des tomates...

Bleu est la couleur du ciel...


...et de la mer...
Those rather odd blank patches are awaiting a pop-up speech bubble and a rotating wave respectively...All in good time. Quelle relief to be churning out some final degree show work at last!

Vert est la couleur de l'herbe...


et des arbres... Final illustration for Marie et Pierre, soon to be accompanied by lovely popping-up branches revealing an oh-so-exciting translation of a piece of french; won't those kids be ecstatic?! One down, eight to go...

Marie et Pierre


Colour experimentation (pencil, wash, coloured pencils) for upcoming bilingual kids book "Marie et Pierre: Les Couleurs", designed to introduce english-speaking enfants to the joys of the french language, aided by some nifty pop-up elements.
