Jaq Jaq Bird – Chalk book covers and maps
Posted 1 week ago and submitted by Alex Foster | Share link: http://illo.cc/85678

For their ‘Cities of Wonder’ collection, Jaq Jaq Bird commissioned me to make illustrations for their chalk-page books.

Each book featured a fabric cover design, a map, and six line drawings for the interior chalkboard pages which can be drawn on with chalk or their erasable markers.

You can see more of my work for this commission on my website.

Thank you to Amy, Grace and the team at JJB.

"We regularly work with illustrators, both experienced and relative newcomers. We consider Alex quite a find. He worked to budget and on time. He was thoughtful and considerate and had lots of ideas. He was amenable to reworking a drawing when we suggested additional or alternative ideas. In all his work, both in colour and black and white, he brought an imaginative approach to the job, using a nice variety of styles and mark-making that we think add style and character. We could not be more pleased with the result and highly recommend his services."
