TabuTale1-1100wm

… a big, lean, grey wolf jumped out…

Illustration for The Tabu Tale, from Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories, published in a limited edition of 1,000 copies by The Folio Society, 2012. Watercolour on Saunders Waterford hot pressed, 170 x 235mm.

This illustration and the one for The Beginning of the Armadillos combined a more painterly treatment for the background with detailed work on the animals. The approach is quite different from most of the other illustrations in the book and is a slight departure from my usual methods, but I very much enjoyed it and would like to pursue it further.
