Fran Moser is a local Brisbane Author (we worked together at a design studio). Fran is a creative and fun loving spirit with a beautiful daughter (and fun loving puppy) who are the inspiration behind her new venture into children’s book publishing.
Create character references and full page story book illustration for 2 children’s story books based on the adventures of Lily and Tily.
This book is part of the series The Adventures of Lily and Tily which is based on the real life adventures of my daughter Lily and our little dog Tily, who has a heart shape patch.
The books hope to inspire young children to go on adventures (just like Lily and Tily like to do) and are set outside in nature where they are the most happiest.
The themes that naturally come through the stories are; the value of the outdoors and nature to inspire and nurture children’s imagination and creativity. The importance of a healthy sense of adventure, the unconditional love and friendship received from animals, the significance of family time and connection and the overwhelming need for children to learn and socialise through outside play.
This was one of the largest illustration projects I have had the pleasure of working on – and also one of the funnest. Being a dad of 3 myself I am totally immersed in the world of children’s books at the moment, and Fran’s stories are lovely.
So will the scope and size of the project were a challenge, embracing the story and drawing to my hearts content wasn’t.
Thanks James, this is so exciting!
I love every aspect of it.” – Fran
I’m pretty excited about the new Tintin movie coming out. Especially after seeing the first Tintin teaser trailer on Empire Online this morning. I’m also super excited that both Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg are involved in the production and both the trailer and still images look amazing.
I couldn’t resist writing a post about my favourite comic of all time.
Tintin has been a huge inspiration for me as an illustrator and even as a designer. I love everything from the bold colours to the detailed plots. Mostly though I love Herge’s unique style ‘lineage’ drawings. Perhaps you can see some of his influence in my own illustration portfolio. Especially in some of this comic style illustrations
This image from Tintin in Tibet captures something about what I love about Herge’s world. There are probably more interesting and developed images but something about this one has always grabbed me, even as a kid.
How cool is that little puff of cloud in the top left. Genius.
Here’s a video of Herge himself at work drawing everyone’s favourite character, the drunk sailor, Captain Haddock.
I think the other influence the work of Herge has had on me, beyond simply style is a desire to create something cinematic.
I’m definitely looking forward to this one.
