Illustration Friday: Trail

Illustration Friday: Trail 2

I imagine the picture above as the end-papers to a picture book. Pen and ink with an old page scanned and added on the computer.

The next is a mash-up of ‘Fields of Gold’ and ‘Leaving on a Jet Plane’ – pen and ink with digital colour.

One of the first ideas I had for this topic was Hansel and Gretel and the trail of bread crumbs, but they turned into another famous brother and sister, and a different trail.

  1. Love the middle one. Parochial on the bottom, yet I can really hear the modern WHOOSH of the plane going by. As always, I love your detail – the small furrow the walker is making with his/her hand is terrific.

  2. They do look like illustrations from yesteryear. I love the page texture and the linework, especially on the first one. The second one is nice and evocative, and suits both songs!
