For those of you who are not fed up yet with Mr Francis Fox and Konstantin Mouse (yes, those are the names I seem to have settled for, what do you think?), here is a little teaser of my first own Mr Fox story!
I have been working on this book for a while now, struggling especially with the fact that I am not a writer. So it will be more of a picture story for young children than a literary masterpiece….
I had fun putting this little project together with old and new drawings and maybe some of the Mr Fox fans out there will enjoy it too. It is not your typical colouring book, but it also invites you to add backgrounds and add to the drawings on your own. Just like the Capybara Colouring book.
The drawings are accompanied by inspirational quotes that I personally like.
Have a great Sunday and 2. Advent!
We have a proper storm out there. I keep on adding ideas to my to-do and drawing list. So this is a good day to continue and finish with some of the other open projects I have. 🙂
Thank you everyone for the great feedback regarding the cover design!
I took all comments into consideration an tweaked the cover a bit more. The orange header was definitely a winner and I tried to keep it at least somewhat similar in style to the Capybara Colouring book.
So this is the current and perhaps final version of the front and back cover.
So I thought after the capybara colouring book was so well received, that I would put some of my old and brand new Mr Fox drawings together in a colouring book.
I have been playing around with cover designs on Affinity publisher, but with way too many colour and font choices, picking one is difficult. So I narrowed it down to these 4. Which one is your favourite? Take part in the poll below.
In hindsight I would do many things differently when it comes to illustrating and editing the book. But then again, it was the first and there is a learning curve. 🙂 I definitely want to do more book illustrations and am busy practicing and learning new publishing and editing programs.
In fact, I just finished my second children’s book, a story about a little fly. I am very happy of how it turned out. More about it soon!
I have plenty of inspiration when it comes to drawings but I suck at making up stories. If anyone has a great story idea they would like to collaborate on, please drop me a line.
