Farla the Hare and the Oily Secret
A book illustration project
Chris Edon is a fellow artist with a love of the British countryside. Back in 2018 he was creating sculptures and large abstract acrylic pieces - often with short accompanying poems. Inspired by the wildlife he saw on his daily walks he wrote a poetic short story about some animal characters helping each other out, and then asked if I'd like to illustrate the story to create a book.
This was my first book project and I was pretty much working it out as I went along, which was a little scary - but it was also pretty fun to work through a process of concept sketching, storyboarding and eventual book assembly!
