The Making of An African Alphabet

Coming March 14 to a bookstore near you, AN AFRICAN ALPHABET, written by awesome children’s author, Eric Walters, published by Orca Books and Illustrated by me!

The final cover art is accompanied by photos of my process: the rough dummy, a collage of carved linoleum, my printmaking press, and some final black and white prints. The next step is to scan the prints and colour them in Photoshop.

An African Alphabet arrived!

Look what arrived on my doorstep today! My copies of the board book, AN AFRICAN ALPHABET, written by Eric Walters, published by Orca Books. I love drawing animals and had a great time with this commission. The art is hand carved linocut with digital colour.
