Allow me to introduce you to an uber-talented British children’s book illustrator, Mr. Andy Elkerton. By chance I came to associate with this artist through my husband’s snark-filled movie review podcast, Everyone’s A Critic (shameless plug) – as Andy is a listener and interacts with the EAC “community”. An ironic clash between hard-edged podcast content and the illustrations that whisper delicately of knights in armor, apes wearing bras, frogs eating cake and other imaginative visual delicacies.
I had a chance to shop-talk a little with Andy about his stellar work. From initial glances, the illustrations look amazingly smooth with airbrush qualities. This is because he creates them digitally, using a Wacom to do the virual drawings. Andy has a rich history of working in the field of creating computer-generated images.
These samples are compressed but I HIGHLY recommend that you check out the full size and high def versions of his amazing showcase at his website http://www.andyelkerton.com/
If you have kids, I think they would love to look at the fabulous images in these books. And you just might, too!
