'Singer of starlight'
Hello! Above is the latest illustration from the course I'm doing. The brief was to show two characters (an older and a younger person) relating to each other in a warm setting. The book title 'Singer of Starlight' was left up to us to interpret. I interpreted this as being a granny filling her granddaughter in on the good old days when she was a singer (probably in a 1930's style music hall called 'Starlight' :-)) I scanned in a black ink monoprint and a sheet of sepia watercolour, together with linework, and overpainted in photoshop. Enjoyed it v much and robbed the cat for me new-look blog banner - happy days.
