Love how this scene gives a sense of coziness for a late night chat. The story revolves around a kid whose dad is always oit at sea. This comforting flying kiss while sharing moms hug surely captures this golden moment.

After doing around 50 picturebooks, this is my first big book, and it was a challenge considering the sheer size that wont make readers miss any details. You may have seen the previous post on how the complete pencils looked like. :)

This will be part of my upcoming Think Big (A Big-Book trilogy) for toddlers. Hopefully we'll all get to see it in print for the Manila Int'l bookfair on September. :) Despite the very enticing digital art rendering, I'm trying to make this set of ten illos as handmade as possible.

The foreground elements create all the magic of depth. I should make more of this. My tablet and I are best friends again.

|Let's Go! - Version 2|
Thursday, June 21, 2012
At the moment, I am tasked to do a "motion" themed set of works, I made this piece reminiscent of my childhood love for running, scary forests, puddles, lamps and fireflies. After making it, I realized the characters in this scene personify my current feelings over settling into one style! It's eerie figuring that out after the many hours that went into this. Let's see how this goes along. I still have a stack of sketches to render. I've got a long way to go, but thanks for joining me in this journey.

Most of the pieces were sold early this year, but you may get in touch with me for some which are still available. Each comes with a free picture book for a fun read-along to a child, and introduce him/her to the appreciation of original works of art.
