Trina’s illustrations for New Family Traditions Book

Trina writes:

“Hi Lilla

I loved illustrating this book so much!

It was for Running Press and written by Meg Cox. It’s packed full of great suggestions on how to create personal family rituals and traditions – it has a really imaginative and cosy feeling text. I’ve worked as a nanny and also as an au pair many times over the years and as I drew these pictures it was amazing how many memories and wonderful days spend in the company of children came flooding back to me!

I also loved the challenge of working in two colours plus tints for the interior illustrations and as well as the forty illustrations I also produced a few repeat patterns that were used as backgrounds throughout the book.
I’ve included the two colour roughs I did for the cover.”
