So much has been going on, I’ve barely had time to report on all the wonderful projects Red Admiral has taken on this year. One such project is near and dear to my heart, as it marks a return to the natural media that brought me to illustration to begin with: colored pencil and ink!
Little Bunny Bed captures the internal musings of a little boy who happens upon a resting bunny and subsequently imagines a world in which the bunny cavorts with friends and engages in mystical observations of the natural world around it. This lullaby/book by author Karen L. Johnson debuts a theme she plans to explore more fully with additional books, in which readers are taken on a meditative journey into nature and the imagination.
As her illustrator, I’ve tried to honor the pairing of the real and imaginary by using colored pencil and ink to paint a dreamlike world of bright swirling color.
I couldn’t be more proud of the final product. Purchase your copy today on Amazon at the link below:
My three year old requests it regularly, as he likes it both read and sung, and I can provide no better endorsement. I hope you’ll check it out!
