Illustrations for a pop-up book
Posted 9 months ago and submitted by Lyn Stone | Share link:

Moo! Baa! Cluck! Ooh! It’s a 3D farm book I created illustrations from a few years ago. I thought I’d share an archived project that I enjoyed working on this week.

This illustration is one of my favourites from Rosie Rides to the Rescue, published by Armadillo. The book was fabulous fun to work on and quite challenging too. On each spread the artwork had to span three layers. The publisher provided a template for each layer as a guide, but I was then able to suggest where the peek-o-boo elements could be. There were areas I had to leave blank, but bleed into and other parts that had to be crammed with interesting detail. Truly tricky, but fantastic fun!

It has been hand-painted (spoiler alert: with actual brushes) with some digital enhancements (much like models on the front covers of glossy magazines).

This composite image shows the layering effect that turned each spread into a pop-up 3D image.

I was looking for an artist to help me create my business logo and branding for my business. With so many artists to choose from I was thrilled when I found Lyn Stone on Hire an Illustrator. Her whimsical style, finesse, and talent set her far above the countless others. Being new to the experience of hiring an artist, it was reassuring that Lyn was so helpful and walked me through the entire process. After thoroughly gathering my ideas, she rendered a beautifully designed logo with branding and illustrations that I couldn’t be happier with. Her artwork is super fun, clever, and makes you smile! I love all her pieces she has displayed on her profile and I knew she would be able to make my vision come to life. I highly recommend Lyn Stone; she is a top-notch professional and a joy to work with!
