Grow Big, Little Seed - Picture Book Illustration



Book Animation

Publisher: Hardie Grant under Bright Light
Written by: Bec Nanayakkara
Illustrated by: Sarah Capon
Materials: Layered paper, gouache, coloured pencil

When I was asked to illustrate the Grow Big, Little Seed manuscript by Bec Nanayakkara I knew it was something special. A story about rainbow babies written so tenderly ๐Ÿ’—. This book follows a little girl growing a plant, and is a child appropriate way of explaining disappointment, hope, and trying again, to someone young.

Along with illustrating the book I also created an animated version which you can find on youtube, and set up a window display at Where the Wild Things Are, Brisbane.

"A beautiful story about trying again, amazing handmade paper art makes this book truly special!" โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

"A beautifully written story with equally beautiful illustrations to go with it." โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…
