Grandfather Illustrations

An author contacted me recently to illustrate eight images for his novel which is forthcoming. Here are two of the completed scenes - along with the 3rd and final draft before completion of the two. The book centers around a grandfather and his grandson - each chapter has very teachable moments and the images are to encapsulate those chapters/ themes. Once the book is published and images are actually printed I'll post more scenes/information.

I used some heavy watercolour paper which absorbed the ink and also provided a good 'tooth.' India ink and a 102 Hunts nib was used for the final product.

It was a debate for myself to go with a typed font or hand made (which is certainly not as steady looking). It really depends on what aesthetic you want.
