Lemur is hot off the pencil!

Pearsons Publishing has recently asked me to do some preparatory work for an educational book. The test work included two drawings of Lenny Lemur is two positions. If successful I will have the commission for the whole book. I wanted to try a different approach to the style on these drawing. Mainly as most of my previous work involved scanning pencil work and converting through live trace. This artwork was achieved completely freehand over the top of the pencil work, inside Illustrator.

1 creative person, slightly matured
2 tablespoons aptitude
1 piece of aesthetic flavouring
6lbs hard work and sweat
4 ideas more than most
salt of the earth to taste

Take a creative person and stir in some aptitude, thoroughly from the start. In time, mix in the aesthetic flavouring with the most appropriate tool at hand, and then, fold into the mix as much of the hard work and sweat that the mix can take. Sprinkle in the ideas; the more the better. And finally, as all is cooking, a pinch of ‘salt of the earth’ to give it the necessary character. Leave to cook over time and serve when required. Tasty treat in a tasteless world.
