I have always wanted to illustrate a children's board so when this client approach me for a book I immediately said yes!
The story is a famous japanese folklore Momotaru; The Peach Boy.
The boy is born from a peach fruit an old couple found floating in the river. They raised this boy until he was older. Momotaru went on a journey to save the princess from the monsters where he met all his friends who helped him succeed in his mission.
I finished all 14 main illustrations, the front cover and the character illustrations in a month. The client is very detailed in the instructions and guided me in the process that made the transaction smooth.
I started working on the watercolor elements and finish all other details digitally.
I am so happy with the outcome of the book and hope to make more illustration books in the future.
