The artwork for Bilbo’s Adventures, children’s books is created using two different techniques.
Santa and The Little Teddy Bear, uses a classic acrylic painting method of multiple glazing overlays to give the paintings depth and brilliance that is associated with classical art. These illustrations and paintings are displayed over the Holiday season in the Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Art, in Denver Colorado. The Book cover won the, 2011 INDIE Excellence Book Cover Design-Children-Finalists Gold Medal.
The second technique used for all of the Bilbo’s Adventures, kids books is a combination of the acrylic technique with hand painted black and whites using a brush and mars black acrylic paint to create the outline of the images which are then scanned and air brushed in the computer using Gimp a free program similar to Photoshop. This technique is less time consuming and allows image manipulation to accommodate the text within the illustration.
The manuscript ideas are story boarded and then the images and are developed to enhance and tell the tale.
Laugh sing and dance with Bilbo, Santa and the reindeer in these holiday books for the Christmas season.
