Dream Date

My illustration for volume 8 of “Lilies”. The theme for this volume was “sleep” so I played around with the idea of a literal dream date. Like a dream they’ve passed through one story into the next, having a wonderful time in each other’s company.

I had so much fun with this one, mashing up scenery and adding in all sorts of little fey creatures to follow the girls around. I wanted to enhance the feeling of not quite real by contrasting patches of solid black against a pale and dreamy color palette. I love the effect and will have to think about how to use it more often in my work!
