Kids and books

Emmeline Illustration

Have a read of the article here: [link] One More Candle comes out 1st September 2013. I have to say, seeing photos like this of kids on the other side of the world enjoying a book you've illustrated is SUCH a brilliant feeling. It's not an easy job (seriously) but this sort of thing makes it worth it. These pictures are from a great little article: Reading with Toddlers and Encouraging Positive Relationships over on OurEverydayThings blog.

Emmeline Illustration

Happy New Year guys! It's been a couple of weeks since delving back into my freelance work - I spent a lot of the Christmas break by the sea and in the forests, so my inspiration bucket was re-filled. It's certainly been busy so far though! I'm working on two new kid's books at the moment, which will be out later this year. In other news, last week I FINALLY managed to get a frame for this signed Oliver Jeffers / Y ou & Me The Royal We print I won a year or so back.

Pick Wick Magazine - Issue #1 feature

Emmeline Illustration

Last week I was honoured to feature in the very first issue of the completely gorgeous Pick Wick magazine. There's a great little interview with me about my childhood and how it's influenced the way I work in illustration today. Aside from a bit of an editing-whoopsie with the surname typo (actually happens quite a lot.) it's a really lovely feature with insightful questions and a double page spread of my Wren and The Bear illustration.

I reworked this old illustration yesterday. Sometimes it takes a while to be able to distance yourself from the work and view it critically. I'm definitely a lot happier with it, and in a way it's nice to see that my working style has improved (well, I think so) within a year.

'Captain Seadog' Is Ship-Shape

Chris Dunn Illustration/Fine Art

I finished my latest animal painting last week, 'Captain Seadog'. He's now fully rigged and ready to set sail and aim cannon against ' Captain Ratbeard '. Captain Seadog Watercolour & Gouache 24 x 31cm I found this piece challenging because there is not a lot of fussy detail and lots of open spaces in the composition. I kept going back to N.C Wyeth's treasure island paintings as I worked trying to grasp his wonderful sense of design and colour.

Captain Ratbeard

Chris Dunn Illustration/Fine Art

This is a bit of a jump from my previous post 'Cheetah chase' (more on that later). Below you can see a detailed rough of the next animal painting to go with my recent series of work. I've decided to call him Captain Ratbeard, his long beard is braided but unlike Blackbeard it's not smouldering - I didn't think his hairs would stay lit in such a terrible sea storm.

Captain Seadog

Here is what I am working on at the moment: This is Captain Seadog the navy captain sworn to guard the seas and coasts against Captain Ratbeard. In other news I am now a father to a lovely little baby born called Arthur! He was born early morning Thursday 5th December and both him and mother are doing great. Hopefully that explains why I haven't posted much recently.

Hedgehogs Progress

Chris Dunn Illustration/Fine Art

I've made a start on the next in my series of whimsical-animal-based-fantasy watercolour paintings (I need to think of a better title). I'm really trying to push the warm and cool colour relationships in this painting and I'll have to be careful when I'm painting the snow, I've never been much good at that.

The Orator

Chris Dunn Illustration/Fine Art

The Orator Watercolour / Gouache 24 x 31cm Hot off the easel, watercolour painting finished and scanned this morning! I had a bit of trouble with the values in this painting. I have attempted to increase them on Mr Toad while letting the background level out slightly in the hope that the main character will stand out sufficiently. Now, that's not easy to do when you have an open fireplace crackling merrily in the background as it forces you to develop contrasts so the flame look suitably bright.

THE CHANGING ETIQUETTE OF THEFT

Illustration Art

Recently a west coast illustrator was outraged to discover that her art had been used without her permission by a corporation, Cody Foster Inc., for its line of Christmas ornaments.

More new paintings.

Chris Dunn Illustration/Fine Art

Below you can see two paintings I am working on right now, even as I type this my other hand is holding a paintbrush, one eye is on the screen and the other eye is overseeing my brushwork. I'm also playing 'The Entertainer' on an old upright piano I have in the corner of my studio, I really hope the wind doesn't change or I'm stuck like this forever. In order of appearance, sepia underpainting and corresponding initial sketch below.
