The Owl and The Pussycat - Book Project 2008

Working drawing - a discarded composition - Steph Chalmers - 2008

Final book - the first page "The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea..." - Steph Chalmers - 2008

Back in 2008, I made a series of prints illustrating Edward Lear's 'The Owl and The Pussycat'.
Looking back on early sketches is quite funny. I think I made some good decisions, though overall it is too literally illustrated. I'm glad I kept the color palette simple.
Here's a slideshow that starts with my first sketches, and then shows each page of the final book...
