Hello! I’m Jude and I am a digital illustrator. My main inspirations are from nature, plants and animals, I love to experiment and create characters from these!
For my final project I wanted to make a graphic novel aimed at children with the underlying theme of kindness. This project gave me the opportunity to refine my digital illustration skills and also experiment with how I can incorporate traditional textures such as watercolours and inks into my digital work in a subtle way, for example, the skies.
The story is about 2 children (brother and sister) who are on a journey to return a star that fell from the sky back where it belongs. They face some obstacles along the way but throughout this they notice the star is getting brighter and brighter, regaining the light it lost when it fell. Their kindness made a difference to the star and saved it, which they start to realise at the end of the book, and at one point in the story this kindness is returned when the characters needed the light to help them through the dark.
Here are some of my favourite pages from my story!
