Library festival brochure cover 

I decided to add a page of text as the background as I didn’t want to distract the viewer from the main illustration but felt there needed something behind the image as both a secondary tie in to books and library and also to make the background a least a little bit interesting.

After trying a few different text I settled on a page from E H Shepherds “A World of Winnie-the-Pooh: Tigger is Unbounced” as I felt the main target of my illustration was children and Winnie the Pooh is a well known childrens character but also know by a lot of Adults; also the font is large and legible but also non-distracting.

I think the text would go in the lower corner of the front page (see image) (image will be folded along the centre (dragon face on front and children on back))

Library festival brochure cover

After success with some similar characters in a previous project, I decided to focus the illustration on books rather than Hereford and sketched a “book dragon” as an idea.

I felt this could become a colourful bright illustration that would be attractive to both children and adults.

I chose to cut each of the dragon individual book scales out of paper I textured using ink. The dragon underbelly and book pages in his tail are from an old dictionary. I added a second child, both of which are also made out of the texture paper and now have to decide on a background as I have gone off the idea of just having sky behind.
