The Rock and the Bird

Here’s a book I illustrated this year that is published by Epigram Books. The art style is quite different from the projects I usually do and it was a great experience to work with designer Caslyn Ong, who had a similar vision for the book as I did. Many thanks to editor Sheri Tan for her support and help.

These are some of the initial sketches while I was trying to get a grasp on the character and look/feel of the book. I think the hardest challenge was to create an emotional impact with an inanimate character that had no way of expressing itself.
