The Century Rare Fairy Party

By Kirsty McCrudden
  • The Story: A fairy child has a series of adventures when she attends a magical fairy party.
  • The Brief: Four illustrations, created in magical, whimsical style, that illustrate key moments from the story.
  • Medium: Fine liner pens and watercolour.

A local author commissioned me to create four children’s book illustrations for their original story. For this project, I worked closely with the author to design a cast of zany characters to appear as she imaged them and developed a style to fit her vision of the story.

Additionally, the author also commissioned me to design the layout for the final book, and have it printed and bound for a private publication.
