Original illustration for Knitty Kitty

Original illustration for Knitty Kitty
I created this small painting while working on the art for Knitty Kitty (written by David Elliot and published by Candlewick Press in 2008). I had been looking at the work of Beatrix Potter while developing the project and I knew I wanted to capture something of her line and color in the look of the art. I sat down, and created this sketch/painting and it hung on the wall for weeks. I shared it with my art director when the project was nearly complete and she loved it so much it ended up on the title page of the book!
This painting was created with watercolor, acrylic and ink. The art area measures roughly 4 1/2 inches high by 4 inches wide. Neither the the typography or watermark appear on the actual painting.
