Work in Progress

Received some good news this week: our dissertation has been delayed by about 10 days. Which means I have a bit more time to actually work on some illustrations too. Yay! And to celebrate this, I decided to update my blog with some work progress images. Well only two so far, but it's better than nothing, right?


I want to share with you the main characters in the book I'm currently trying to make. It's a book about a foster family and a little girl who goes from foster care to this new family. Below are the concept sketches I made of the characters.

From left to right: Bert and Sonja, who work in foster care. And then Merel and her bear Boris.

From left to right: Thomas, Annie and Frank, the foster family.

We've already seen Sonja and Merel in the finished lino I posted a while ago. Hopefully soon I can post some more lino prints here (once I actually get around to making them that is).

For now I have one more to share with you. I'm not sure yet if this is what it will end up looking like in the end product, but I'm pretty sure it will. Unless someone has suggestions for how to make it look better of course. Suggestions are always welcome!

  1. Frank en Bert vind ik op dit moment vrij veel op elkaar lijken, maar waarschijnlijk zal er een groter onderscheid zijn eens je ze uitwerkt in je gekozen techniek. Uw 'end product' onderaan is echt mooi qua compositie en kleur, alsook die mooie circulaire beweging. Ik kan er niets op aanmerken! Doe vooral verder zo! Groet, Han
