Becca Thorne
The House of Mouse


Image Type: Single Image

Usage: Internal illustration for self-authored children's book (unpublished).

Process: Hand burnished linocut layers compiled digitally.

Materials: Linocut, printmaking, digital.

Formats: Digital files and hand-printed single-colour layers.

Brief Requirements: Self-initiated: first page illustration for a self-authored children's book.

Key Brief Ideas: This first page illustration sets the scene for the book. I wanted to use limited, handprinted colour with a retro feel and to keep the image simple while still providing interest for children as well as parents.
