Ok, as far as illustrations go this is a complete failure, so I didn’t send it to the IF site. Cant honestly say you are illustrating something if you just write the words down in a different style.
But… my favorite collection of Myths is from Rudyard Kipling. I got completely wrapped up in re-reading the Jungle Book collection and his poetry this week. I also realized that I can NOT draw jungle animals from memory, and my house is sadly lacking in books with pictures of jungle animals. Do’H!
So instead I went with watercolor & rusty calligraphy for the opening lines of The Law of the Jungle.
And in case you aren’t real familiar with Rudyard Kipling’s works may I suggest Toomai of the Elephants, and The White Seal… two of my absolute favorites that I really hope to play around with illustrating this weekend.
