Illustration Friday: Book
The topic this week for Illustration Friday is BOOK.
I have to admit, I was pretty psyched when I saw it. I'd been wanting to do a group of people/something reading books, but I hadn't gotten around to it.
I needed a prod and I got one.
I decided to go with monkeys because WHY NOT?! I considered going with crazy multi-colored monkeys, but then I thought I'd keep their palette somewhat realistic and let the colors come from the books. I also wanted to keep the tree very background and minimal, so all you get there are some branches and leaves.
The most fun was cutting up the collages for the book titles. I think my favorites are:
The Astonishing Chicken and Library Cowboy.
Happy Monday, everyone!
