I just completed illustrations for “The Little Snail Series” website, which was designed to promote a collection of children’s stories by Grace Lee . The first story in the series focuses on a small snail who embarks on an expansive journey to Machu Picchu. He encounters a colorful cast of characters along the way and ultimately learns about courage and determination. I really enjoyed working on this project and used it as an opportunity to develop my illustration style.
All of the plants, trees and flowers were hand drawn, then scanned into Photoshop and Illustrator. I then scanned in handmade watercolor textures and used each scan to colorize my drawings in Photoshop.
When I was finished with the illustrations, I made a composition for the website. Pomade’s web designer then animated each character.
