I chose the little one with the arrow.
(I guess I will develop all these little girls you picked, they will be great together, that was fun, thanks so much for playing with me:)
A very nice lady writes nursery rhymes ("comptines" in French) and was looking for someone who can illustrate them. A friend of mine gave her my number, we talked on the phone and she sent me one of her comptines, so that I could get an idea of her work and see if it inspired me or not.
It did. When I read it, something jingled in my head... I have no children and don't have much experience with little ones and even less with nursery rimes! Perhaps the jingling in my head is the universal nursery rhyme response:)
This comptine is about a little coloured girl (J) who has been adopted and now lives in Paris. The rhymes are very sweet, we have to keep them secret, though. There will be more pages and we will have to think about the layout. This is the beginning. There should be no more than, let's say 4 or 5 pages. (which means 8 or 10 images!)
May I present you "J" (watercolour, size about 30 x 40 cm (11.8x15.7")
