How were your illustrations used? :
Book inside or spot illustration/s, Experimentation, Print/poster or postcard, Self Promotion/portfolio

How did you make this work:
These images were made for Orange Beak Studio’s Instagram challenge Once Upon a Winter. I developed a very experimental printing technique that combined charcoal and washing-up liquid as a medium for making multiple monoprints with unique textures; they were scanned and collaged in Procreate to create landscapes, it was a bit like finding pictures in clouds. The characters were drawn digitally.
