Thought I’d post some concept work from Fairy Birds

The first sketches of the characters were done in 2011, and we were going to go with and ink and watercolor style… and then it was put on hold for a year. The final designs that were decided on were done in fall 2012, and I moved to photoshop. Quite a shift. 

Also included: some early designs for Miss Wisteria and the wings. And then the color sketch a page vs. the final.

In the book the fairy birds are trying to earn their feathers through acts of kindness, and invites kids to do the same. The authors also created a line of accessories so kids can dress up as fairy birds. It’s been pretty fun to see things I’ve drawn exist in the real world!
