The Boy and his Troublesome Cloud
January 14, 2011 § Leave a comment
For a new personal project I’ve been writing and illustrating a story about a boy who has a troublesome cloud. This cloud follows him everywhere, constantly raining, hailing, blowing him away, and basically causing a huge stress and annoyance.
I used my usual technique of pens and digital manipulation, but I also tried to highlight the effects of the cloud on the book and the (increasingly irritated) boy by scanning old paper that had been torn, wet and crumpled. This way I could represent the cloud in a physical way within the book.
