"...it is the property of certain surfaces that appear to change colour as the angle of view or the angle of illumination changes". Like these guys feathers. Met these chaps at Birdworld, and I liked that they seemed to look a bit shifty, like they were up to something. Watercolor & ink.
Probably just because I like playing with knives, I have been exploring the possibility of illustrating my book with paper cuts. I imagine eventually creating designs which are so intricate that the paper becomes like lace. These are a few of my first attempts.
I have written a children's book, about an owl who goes on a great journey and meets lots of other birds along the way, and eventually learns something about himself. I will be spending some time experimenting with how to illustrate it.
