Illustrations for Children’s Stories

For Halloween last year my husband has wrote a couple of short stories for my nephews.  He asked each of them to write a list of themes they wanted included in the stories and from this created a little tale of horror.  The kids loved it so he decided to repeat it so I thought I’d create a cover for each tale.

As all of my paints other than watercolour have been packed up I thought I’d go with more of a papercut collage approach as watercolour doesn’t really give the dark feel you want for horror stories.

He didn’t end up using any of the pictures but it was good fun creating them.
