Ominous "PROJECT X"

I was asked to illustrate a small section of 'Macbeth for kids'.  The part I was given was towards the start where the three witches are on the heath with the mist and storm etcetc...

Couldn't go any bigger than A5 with it, which is considerably smaller than I usually work, but oh well.  I wanted to keep the witches awaaaaayyy from that whole stereotypical big-nosed-green-hag thang, so I worked with the ideas that witches are associated with shapeshifting/animals and such.  I like that it looks like they're just dressed up in creepy animal costumes too.

Aussie? I see.


Well, I've been doing lots of work on my current origami themed children's book, but you're not allowed to see that just yet..teehee!

However, I'll throw this into your eyes instead:

I finished this poster off really quickly, which was a wonderful feeling! I like to do little projects between hefty kids books and get things finished. I painted the hair, used pencils for the linework on the hair, bottles, logo etc and digital for the rest - whey!

I hope you have a lovely day.
