Roses and snails

Here is my design for last week's Lilla Rogers 'Make Art That Sells' assignment which was all about children's book illustration. I am loving this course so far and can't wait to explore some new markets armed with lots of top tips from Lilla. 
'The Snail And The Rose Tree' was written by Hans Christian Andersen in 1861. There is no fairy tale ending for this self-centred snail who has no time for beauty in his day to day life.

I created this design in watercolour and collage. The floor around my desk was in a bit of a state by the time I finished this!

  1. I love it! It's very cute and I really like the mix of painted and collaged work - particularly the patchwork snail shell :)
