Just finished this hand bound commission piece for a super lovely client. She paid me to make this one off graphic novel to give to a special friend of hers as a gift. There are some nice people in this world, that much is for sure. #handbound #bookbinding #commission #art #graphicnovel #illustration #painting
I took some time off from posting “businessy” things over January. It’s February already (what??) and so I’m keen to get back in to sharing what I’ve been up to. So let’s start with this piece I finished off late last year.
A lovely person approached me to illustrate her words as a short graphic novel. It was to be a one-off hand made piece, a gift for a close friend of hers.
My illustrations used pen and water colour paints. I then made a cover with thick card and hand bound it all together using cotton. As a finishing touch, I added some stars and planets to the cover using a silver pen.
What a pleasure it was to complete. MOAR PLEASE! COME AT ME!
