Alphabet book

Personal project, 2016

This is an alphabet book for children comprising of 26 illustrations, loosely based on the theme of adventure, featuring many of my son’s favourite things. Each letter of the alphabet is illustrated with simple, recognisable imagery to help children remember the 26 letters of the alphabet.

Illustrations are composed and collaged together in Photoshop with hand-made imagery created by experimentation with a variety of media. Pen tops, tooth brushes, Tip-ex and anything that creates an interesting line or texture are combined to create loose, expressive imagery, with a touch of light-hearted humour.
