The Snail & the Rose Tree

What a week! A super busy week at work, combined with this intense assignment in Lilla Roger’s Studio School. For this week’s assignment, we read an excerpt from the Hans Christian Andersen story “The Snail & the Rose Tree.” We illustrated a cover using hand-lettering and the 2 main characters, a snail and a rose tree. I loved interpreting the narrative, and focusing on the push-pull of the elements. I am happy this piece is done and it got me thinking about what other stories could be fun to illustrate. My hats off to illustrators who create entire worlds for a whole book, what a lot of work! Here is my finished piece. Just click on the image to see it larger on your screen. Have a great week all!
