The Witches


The Witches
Originally uploaded by RNSaffold

#1 in my summer series. This summer I'm going to be doing a lot of illustrations, and I'm going to start numbering
them from here. A lot of the illustrations are going to be book illustrations in preparation for what I'm pretty
sure will be my senior thesis.

If you've never read the book, "The Witches" by Roald Dahl it is probably one of my favorites. Not to mention
the movie that came out in my childhood was pretty faithful to the book. I think I like the relationship between
the retired witch hunter Grandmama and her Grandson the most. Very appropriate timing for Mother's Day, I
think.

Adobe Illustrator CS2.

I'm a James and the Giant Peach kid me thinks.

I love this, the values work so well and a woman smoking on a children's book cover is the shit. The title font and placement has a retro 1970 paperback feel. Awesome. :D

Thanks! You know when I grew the boy, and picked the font, I thought of you.

PS. There will be some James and the Giant Peach Illies this Summer :D
