Baptism of Fire is one of the new leather journals in my bookshop. It’s a longstitch binding covered in curious, rust brown reptile-embossed leather and features a cover flap that can be closed with a hand-braided cord. The linen cord is decorated with small glass beads. Simple, but I like it! There are a few more of these coming. Meanwhile, I’m working on various other projects that won’t see the light of the day just yet.
My (extremely!) rough working dummy of the interactive children’s book I’m creating for my illustration thesis. So many different animals and insects are making special appearances in this book about camouflage and mimicry in rain forests.
I’m currently exploring different illustration styles. Haven’t even given thought to the typography yet. It’ll by finished by early April… meep!
