Another project we have been working on is illustrations for fantasy author Sharon Gibbs’ upcoming children’s book – ‘The Magical Adventures of These Boys Three: a Pirate Adventure’.
We really LOVE this project. Apart from it being our very first children’s book illustrations, the story is so adorable! It reminds us of our childhood days reading Dr. Seuss series. Sharon also told us the book was based on her three grandkids who always go on various adventures together, you know, the way brothers do. She even shared some photo references of her family too for us to base the illustrations on. This really touched our hearts. Seeing these beautiful boys and her family made us feel very close to her and the story. It’s just a very very special project to us.
Having said that, we have still a long way to go on this one, but we are progressing as fast as we can. We will share one illustration from the book – which is not the cover, peeps! The cover will be more magical for sure… errr, not that this one isn’t magical, but you know, we love this book so much, we will give it the cover it deserves.
Below is the process. Enjoy!
