Whither Goes the Yellow Rose by lemonflower Whither Goes the Yellow Rose by lemonflower
It doesn't look like much here, but this was probably the most important part of my semester. These are the finished pieces from a children's book dummy. Everyone in my class completed a story and at least a 32-page mockup and it was really a fantastic time. The spread goes between the portrait and the guy-languishing-in-Africa-with-giant-okapi, but otherwise the pieces are in order. Watercolor and digital. ("Whither Goes the Yellow Rose" is the name of the story. It was described as "arch" and "diagramatic", which are now maybe qualities I look for in a mate.)

I really love how you choose colors, I don't see watercolors a lot so these are a real treat.

This looks really fascinating, and I'm left wondering about the rest of the story...your style lends itself so well to this type of book! Congrats on a fine work :)

Thanks! Incidentally, I've been beaming good thoughts at your recent work, but my internet presence had just about dropped to zero before break. But now I can beam on the internet. : )

That's Hugh Bert! Hugh Bert, Master Banker! He and the Overly Specific Footman go on adventures together.

P.S. At first reading, I thought they were Sausagey Astro Hugs. Astro-Sausage!

Ooh. Can we have more? Or is this (sadly) it? It would be such a treat to get the full story.
