The Fiction Project

The Fiction Project, orchestrated by The Art House Co-op, invites everyone to tell illustrated stories. I signed up online to receive a blank moleskin, filled it with my story, mailed it back, and now it’s going on tour to Seattle (June 10-12), San Francisco, Chicago, and Winter Park. After travelling across the country it will enter the Brooklyn Art Library’s narractive collection.

There are now 1,000 sketchbooks in the Digital Library!

I’m waiting for my story book to be uploaded. It’s about Selina, a curious fish marine biologist who sets out to find a mysterious creature. But when she’s invited to an underwater fashion show, she finds more than expected.

Madeline in London - Tonal Exercise


In this exercise I chose a colour double spread from the picture book Madeline in London by Ludwig Bemelmans where I really liked the page layout and composition. Then I painted it in black and white to do this tonal study.
