Illustration Friday: "Captain"...Captain Blackbeard



I just noticed that this weeks theme is captain.
These are two spreads I've layouted and illustrated for Samvirke magazine, Denmark, a while ago. I design two spreads every month, intended for kids age 8 and up.
It's a lot of fun to organize all the text, the photos and finding an illustration idea that will tight it all together.

Noget af det fedeste du længe har lavet Erik. De er suveræne, nederdrægtige og meget seje.
ps. har lige smidt et link til din blog på min link liste.

Tak for ros. Det tager en helvedes tid at lave de her opslag, men en ny spændende udfordring hver gang.
Det er min kæreste der står for farverne.
ps. Tak for linket. Min hjemmeside kommer snart op at køre med nyt design. Du får et link til din hjemmeside der fra.

Wonderfully detailed and so kid friendly. Love the pirate's "fearsome" look! Also terrific sense of design. Very nice!

I love the purple kraken (or is it an octopus ?)

THanks for all your comments.

Fossfor: I was thinking about the Kraken, but the head of an octopus made better space for some text....sometime I gotta compromise my initial idea a bit 'cuase I gotta fit all these textbits into the design.
