The 3 Billy Goats Gruff

Have been taking an online course and this week’s assignment is to create an cover for the story “The Three Billy Goats Gruff”. Here is the cover I did. Though it’s not the first time I’ve been working on a cover for a children’s book, but it’s the first time that I put the three key points on mind to make sure it will be a catchy one – personality of the character, emotions and poses of the characters, and the compelling world and surrounding environment. Also, the typography is very important, which I’m playing around to see how it turns out. Hope you like the cover as I do!

Floral Letters

Recently I’m working on a set of floral letters, so much fun to play around the lines and flowers and leaves, combining the nature elements to typeface and letters. Hope I can complete the 26 letters soon!¬†

A Foggy Night

This sketch was inspired by Fenghuang Ancient City in China. I have been there about 5 years ago, when I was still in college. The beautiful scenery of clean river, narrow alleys paved with big chunk stones, special ancient wood buildings, tasty local food and restaurants, the peaceful little ancient town gave me so much memories to remember. I lived in a family inn (which is very common in Fenghuang) for 3 days, and after midnight when I peeked out of the window, I would see the scenery as in the drawing, most bars and restaurants closed, barely with several dim lights on, time to time one or two boats, or candles on little paper boats floating by, while the sound of running river filled the dark foggy night.
