Children’s book art inspiration

Reading books with my son I have a whole range for children’s book illustrations to get ideas and inspiration from. In fact we try to figure out how the illustrator went about making their art for the book.

Today I am inspired by Christina Balit’s art from the Treasury of Egyptian Mythology that National Geographic published. The top picture has the book open beside my sketchbook page. My page is multimedia using watercolours and pens of various sorts- paint, markers, gel etc.
