New Book : The Prince and The Pauper


A new book " The Prince and the Pauper " has been recently released.
I illustrated the English novel written by Mark Twain for the Korean publishing house Agaworld.



Set in 1547, the novel tells the story of two young boys who are identical in appearance : Tom, a pauper who lives with his abusive family in London and Prince Edward, son of King Henry VIII.







" The Prince and the Pauper "  is a traditionally book done in watercolor with touch-ups of colored pencil and pastel.

The time schedule was short, about 70 days and the book size large 470mm(w) x 330mm(h).

I usually illustrate children's  animal art  and I really loved doing a book with people!







I started the book with an intense historical research and  the roughs which were approved with only slight corrections.






And here you go with a few of my favorite pages of the book :

During the Children's Book Fair in Bologna, 19th-22nd March, you'll  be able to see some illustrations taken from this book  displayed in Agaworld's booth H30- A56.
