I used to love old antique story books as a kid. The intricate single colour illustrations were like these occasional little treasures to be savored. I always used to marvel at the depth and complexity the artists managed to achieve with nothing more than line-work. Trying to replicate this style as faithfully as possible was a real wrist breaking challenge and has made me even more in awe of the people who used to illustrate whole books this way.


Thanks to Phil Tseng for the amazing presentation.

In regards to the suggestions that people made in my crit post: I tried about 10 different ideas for the pear icon including a pineapple, cherries & a troll doll outline but none of them looked any good. I hope it doesn't ruin it for those of you who suggested a change. I moved mama goat the the left to create some room between her and the laptop and I also fixed up the grammar and shortened the caption.

Would have been cool to have a bite out of the pear, and maybe a more archaic hand-inked font... you know, the 'W' would be giant with a fancy square box around it.

:) Still awesome work though!
