The Forest Floor Circus
I am participating in the #PortfolioClub2019 challenge. We are given a theme on day one of each month (starting in August 2019) and are to post our take on the theme on the the last day of the month.
The month of August was “Circus” themed. I chose to create the front cover and several character pages for an imaginary story called, “The Forest Floor Circus”.
The Forest Floor Circus
I designed this cover for the Russian folk tale “The Gigantic Turnip” which I adapted to take place in a sea-side village. I did this as part of the “Children’s Book Illustration” class with Lilla Rogers and Zoe Tucker in 2017.
