Alex Walton Illustrations

A Sneak Peak

Here are a few drawings from the book I’m currently working on. Stephanie Lisa Tara asked me to illustrate the cover for her ebook Eliza’s Forever Trees last year. The response has been so positive to her book that she has asked me to illustrate some interior scenes. Initially I was to do 8 black and white drawings and now the project blossomed to 17! I’ve spent a lot of time doing research for the drawings as there are so many animals in the story. I would say that for each drawing my time is divided as follows; 20% research, 30% design, 30% drawing and 20% inking. It is fun and challenging work.
