Cover Illustration

Another big cat front cover
The Tiger Rising front cover
I'm delighted with how the image works on the cover, especially as it was an unusual approach for me. I drew the tiger in pastel, charcoal and coloured pencil leaving the background white. I created a background digitally to suit the story of the book which has the tiger in a cage in a forest, and then enhanced the drawing using photoshop to better match the environment. A thoroughly engaging way of working. This version of the book is currently only available in the US, published by Candlewick.
