I just finished illustrating a 32 page children’s book for author Hiedi Nightingale titled, Robert’s Red Sweater. The story is about a boy named Robert who finds a baby robin and decides to take of it until it’s ready to fly. Robert makes a comfy nest for the bird from his old red sweater. All of the illustrations are black and white with a pop of red color from the sweater and the robin’s chest. They all lead up to the last page which is a brilliant full color composition showing all the robins and their nests. All the illustrations were created digitally via Photoshop. The book will be published through Clare’s Songbird Publishing House and will be available in Spring 2019.
Here are some excerpts:
