Shelly, The Lost Duckling Picture Book Illustrations
Cartooning, Drawing, Illustration
Some time ago I came up with this idea for a wordless children's picture story book and produced 3 sample sequential pages.
Shelly is the story of a little duckling who, as an egg, drifts downstream only to hatch miles away from her family. She is befriended by a wooly caterpillar and together, they make the perilous journey upstream to find her family.
Around the same time I developed and worked up samples for other stories: 'Secret Hamster', 'Cat Flap - The Tale of the Flying Kitten' and 'Granny's Teddy'. I continue to make notes on the many other similar styled stories I have.
The style is very traditional, with an affectionate nod to Beatrix Potter, but with a modern slant.
