Behind the scenes of Elik Belik, by Haya Shenhav
The process starts with thinking: What is the essence of the story? What can I, as an illustrator, add to the story? Where does it take place? Who are the characters? All these decisions will steer the book.
When her family travels to the Amazon, Yaeli befriends a crafty and resourceful monkey. But things get, well, all monkeyed up when her friend follows her back to the city...
1. Visual research about the Amazon
3. Concept illustration - How I see the book
2. Environmental design of Yaeli's room
4. Character design
5. Three sketches for each book spread
6. Choose the color scale
7. Final spread
