Illustration Book

By: Staci Srebro

In a previous post I made, I began the process of making my own book full of illustrations. Well, this week I finished my book!

Accordion books can be made up of any content. I wanted to use my own cat character I’ve been working on to tell a story through this book.

I wanted to draw this demon cat doing things a typical cat would do: playing with toys, trying to catch a laser pointer, or chasing mice. I used Prismacolor pencils to shade each drawing.
