Cover art and interior illustrations for children’s book ‘Penny Fishbound’
Posted 1 year ago and submitted by Matt Soffe | Share link:

Here are the front cover and four of the six interior illustrations I created for a forthcoming children’s book called ‘Penny Fishbound’, about the adventures of a young girl who can breathe underwater and befriends a range of aquatic creatures.

The author provided me with a detailed brief outlining the specific moments/scenes he wanted to see brought to life. The artwork is mostly digital (drawn/painted in Photoshop), but some elements here and there are drawn by hand and combined with the digital elements.

This was great fun to do, particularly the underwater scenes, and I enjoyed working with a much brighter palette.
