The Old Lady who Swallowed a Fly

 

As part of a second year module at university I had to illustrate the cover and two double page spreads for one of two nursery rymes; the owl and the pussy cat, or the old lady who swallowed a fly.

I went for the old lady as I felt I was able to be more creative with the imagery on the page.

Done in watercolours, and gouache, with detail added on top with fineliner and computer editing. The font used is my own creation.
