Winter Party Illustration for Humpty Dumpty Magazine

13 Jan

Last fall, I scored a really fun assignment for Humpty Dumpty magazine – a full spread illustrating a poem about a wintry night in a big city park – where a big birthday bash is set to begin. Keeping in mind one of my favourite places in the whole world – Central Park – I had a blast doing this – playing around with the effects of streetlights making halos of light on the snow and adding the gently falling flakes. Also hiding all the objects in plain site… trying to figure what would be just challenging enough for a 5-7 year old. My 4-year-old, who’s EXTREMELY advanced (of course she is) got about half right – I figured that would work out okay. Anyhoo, it was fun to get the printed copy in the mail the other day. Have a look! Can YOU find all the hidden party paraphernalia? Good for you!humpty-print2 humpty-print1 LW_HumptyDumpty_Winter-Party_final_REV1_wtype

    Oh, that is übercute! 🙂 (If that is a word that exists.) Anyway, it took me a while to find the lollipop! Haha!
    It looks so cool what you created for Humpty Dumpty magazine, the kids over there must be lucky with such a talented illustrator as you! 🙂
    Will talk to you soon, but I haven’t find the time yet to answer your mail. Will do soon this week. 🙂
    Snowy hugs, Inge x
