Danny the Champion of the World

For my project I choosed to illustrate one of my favourite children books Danny the Champion of the World from Roald Dahl. I wanted to create a seamless pattern which could be used for example on an endpaper of the book. 

So I wrote down a list of elements I wanted to have in my pattern and I got these: meadow, gypsy caravan, filling station, workshop, old apple tree and kite. 

I picked six colors and started to draw. 


I started with the filling station:


And went on with the gypsy caravan, the apple tree and the workshop.


Finally illustrations are much more detailed than I intented but I just enjoyed it so much that I continued to adding details here and there.

In the end I draw the father and son with their kite:


This is the final scene:


And this is the final pattern:


Thank you!
