How did you make this work:
I created 'Gino' for one of the MA modules at Cambridge School of Art, where I am currently studying. The picturebook is intended as a gentle introduction to death, dog adoption and ownership, with humour and colour affecting the mood of each spread. The illustrations were made by combining emulsion paint, colour pencils, chinagraph and digital alterations.
