bespoke illustrations

the rabbit & the dog

Project Details

The brief was to create a series of bespoke digitized drawings for printing in a book that is based on a unique and personal love story. Characterization had to evolve as the book progressed, and the characters are half human / half animal so not only they grew in age but also became more human.

All artworks and writing is edited in Photoshop so they are solid black on white. Other key graphic elements were introduced to set the scene such as The Bund which is a waterfront area in central Shanghai; the Beetle convertible car; the party scene complete with a dancing dog wearing Speedos.

The reader is guided through the story with hand-written headers and one sentence per page narrative.

As a result the client was very pleased with the book. In addition the artworks depicted the aesthetic and mood of the story accurately even though it was surreal and somewhat abstract.
