For this chapter, as with all of them, I read through Derek’s writing and underlined parts that stood out to me to illustrate and details I wanted to incorporate, both from the fictional story that opens the chapter and the main body of text. I then sketched out some rough ideas using my notes and the chapter 8 illustration to inspire the style until a hit upon an idea I loved! Thanks to the trusty Granada Insider I found a pic of the view of the Alhambra I wanted and voilà! Here’s how it all went down:
Drawing The Final Composition
Filling In The Ink!
Feedback From My Creative Director!
By Naptime It’s Done!!
The Finished Illustration!
Finally Illustration & Words Are United In Chapter 7 Heaven!
You can get prints of the illustrations and other works of mine from my Etsy shop! Please make my day and get a little something for yourself or as a gift for a special someone! I will be adding more colourful prints from my Granada series soon. Also, head over to Amazon to check out The Cats of the River Darro. It’s worth getting a copy just for the pictures 😉
Have a great weekend!!
