I love lullabies. and I like pirate’s stories. Who doesn’t? I am a lucky girl who had a chance to work on a book that has them both. Lullaby with Pirates in action. Or rather one little, rowdy pirate girl who can’t fall asleep!

I wanted my illustrations to be far from computer work. I decided to go back to traditional techniques. I used mainly acrylic paints, crayons, markers. I painted on plywood, sometimes on paper or cardboard. Scissors were my friends too, as there was  lot of cut-outs and collage making.

The mood is quite dark as the night is approaching in the story, and the colours reflect the sea, ocean theme. Big palette of blues, greens and whatever else comes close to it.

The story is written by Darcy Pattison and  published by Mims House.

Here are my illustrations:

While I was working on pirates and my characters, this happened: pull string puppet 🙂
