Pigs Fly: The story of Stanford!
Posted 8 months ago and submitted by Rob Hooper | Share link: http://illo.cc/86214

It was a pleasure to contribute to Liz Carlston children’s book: “Pigs Fly: A Stanford and Loki Tale”.

I mixed a cartoon line approach in Autodesk Sketchbook Pro with a more textured moulding in Photoshop to achieve the style. I particularly enjoyed exploring the texture brushes. (I must do more of that!)

I loved doing this series of illustrations, Liz is the most wonderful author as well as being a lovely person. Her husband Ben even had two of the images secretly mounted and framed for her. I am sure my images will hang in their home as a reminder of our great adventure together. I wish them every success with the Stanford and Loki book in the future!

“Pigs Fly. A Stanford and Loki Tale” is available on Amazon. Please support independent authors by sharing this delightful tale of friendship, perseverance and achievement with your kids and grandchildren.

Rob is just one of those guys that immediately puts you at ease. No matter what kind of brief or deadline, I know that Rob will not only ‘get it’ straight away, but add to and refine it. The first draft is always three steps ahead of where it should be and the end result is nothing short of incredible. He is versatile, intelligent, focused and more creative than is necessarily fair on us mere mortals…
