Drawing from the story of the Rabbit with the Red Wings.
This picture was a runner up for the 2013 Tomie dePaola award from SCBWI.
Here is the quote from Tomie dePaola:
“Stephen Ingram’s illustration from the Yearling was heartbreaking. I can’t imagine the reader not tearing up.”
I am very excited to receive this honor and it was incredibly fun to do the illustration. I used traditional pen and ink and Arches hot press watercolor paper.
Pen and Ink illustration with watercolor on Arches paper. 12 x 32. Loved doing the background with layers of color to bring out the shapes.
Illustration magazine is a gorgeous publication concerning American illustration art. If you want to be inspired at any time I suggest you pick up an issue or buy the magazine online.
This really is a quality publication, with great binding and gorgeous reproductions.
