Puzzle Books

Children's Books. Each book in the collection is based on a theme. This is a small selection of both 1 and 2 page spreads from Summer Holidays, Rainy Days, Round the World and Pirates. It's a game in itself working out what you are meant to do with each picture. For some of the books i've set my own rules for making the illustrations; a limited colour palette and use of outlines, flat spot-colours or overlaying transparent primary colours to make a secondary colours.

This simple experimenting throws up a lot of ideas to be used in other projects.
