macmillan children's book

My entry for the macmillan children's book award, "Clever Mr. Firefly", about a quiet firefly living in a village of bugs which is constantly troubled by the pesky Mr. Bird and their attempts to rid the village of him. A story for all the quiet people waiting for their moment to shine : ).

These are my 4 coloured spreads included in the dummy book.

This was my first time using proper colour in my work as I usually do black and white illustrations. I was trying to achieve a more muted and desaturated colour palette but I wasn't totally happy with it, however, I do hope to work with colour more in my work : )
