The Bush Bride illustrations – for Angie Rega


KJennings-BushBride-WIPphoto2

Before I went overseas, I mentioned I was working on some illustrations to accompany a live reading Angie Rega was to give at the Australian Fairy Tale Convention.

That went very well, and I can now show the finished illustrations. I cut them as one continuous image: the back, with pencil lines, is shown here. It was very tiny. I did not cut myself. I cut myself pretty badly trimming green beans in New York, but this is safer than cooking.

This I scanned in and tidied up.

Because it was to be projected behind Angie while she read, we decided on a fairly clear, strong colour palette. Here is the first of the three slides the image was divided into. The background goes from dawn to day to night.

And here is the whole series as one image. If you click on it, you should go through to its Flickr page where you will have the option to view it at a larger size.
