Warning: meat eaters




I did these caged dragon babies for a for a picture book with children book illustrator from the danish writers association.
I was given a pretty abstract text about two in an egg, that are looking out at the world for the first time trying to figure out what they are and what the wanna be. They can see some green and yellow stuff laying on the ground and some long dark lines that goes all the way up and all the way down...hmm..well I had free hands to interpret the text in my illustrations...so I decided for dragons instead birds.
As far as I have been told, we were three illustrators who have been interpreting this text...Im curious to see what the other two have come up with.
Anyway I had a lot of fun drawing this.
The book will be out in the fall.
