I want to share a secret with you: Have you seen the big tree deep in the woods? It is a very, very old tree and when you first see it, it looks like a normal tree but it is not normal at all. This old tree is the home of many fairies and this is where our story begins...
Remember a few weeks ago I blogged about a book pitch, where the characters art wasn’t a match for the audience? If not you can find it here. This is a continuation of the same project. The illustration above was the revised character design I sent to the publisher. They loved the new characters, but unfortunately the project didn’t get the go ahead. That’s okay though, at least I ended up with some nice new illustrations!
It was also really fun to work on. I wrote a 750 words Easy Reader manuscript to go along with the art samples. The characters are named Mistletoe and Pip – Pip being the one on the branch.
I’m considering to turn it into a personal project, I think it has some potential and since I already have the base materials it wouldn’t be too hard to do. What do you think?
