Anne of Green Gables

After illustrating "Tartarin de Tarascon" for Eli Readers, this past November the publisher called me again. This time to work on "Anne of Green Gables." The cover was my favourite piece, but here is also a small selection of the interior pages.
I worked on the illustrations in a slightly different way. The lines you see on the characters are the actual pencil lines of my roughs. I wanted to use a stronger graphite rendering, but time was against me. Hopefully on the next book!

Hi Gaia,
I wrote this graded reader. I loved your work. Your illustrations really helped to re-tell the story. I hope we'll be able to collaborate again in the future.
