I made this illustration in watercolor paint and gauche, after watching the documentary JANE on Netflix. It’s a beautiful film about the inspiring life and career of Jane Goodall and all the work she did with chimpansees in the jungle of Tanzania. Later on, I used the illustration to pitch to a children’s book published in search of a new illustrator for their books. Since their theme was ‘adventure’ I found this painting quite fitting!
WILDERNIS WINDOW ART
My favorite little plant store asked me to make a piece of window art on their shop front and I couldn’t have enjoyed it more! It was so much fun drawing all the animals (can you find them all?) and all the different plants. I free handed the whole piece and kinda like the quirkiness of the tiger and the leafs. I used water proof chalk marker so it will stay on for quite a bit of time!
This illustration is made in Photoshop using different kinds of brushes. I drew the outline on paper first and scanned it in later.
