Book of Ashes

Happy Monday! I made this illustration late last year for a client who is creative, gracious and supportive. She gave me some parameters but allowed me to explore and do my thing. The result was something we created together and we felt really happy about. It’s not just about what you can do, but what can be done together. 

Book of Ashes is a theatrical play that will debut at the St. Albert Children’s Festival in Summer of 2016. It’s a moving story about a woman who smuggles 1000s of books out of a library during the Iraq war.
