How gorgeous is this magical creation by Jess Lilly of Curious Little Market?! This is The EverWilde: a magical green cuddly friend with toadstools sprouting from their fluff…
I’ve been following Jess for a while, enjoying all of her creations. Her imagination is a power force and she makes such beautiful things.
At the beginning of 2019 Jess did a call out for some design help. I got in touch and we have been working together on a little book! It’s been such a fun project. We have stayed with a limited colour pallette of cool greys and creamy neutrals, with black and white line drawings, designed to captivate the eyes of little people. Here’s a peek at the front cover:
and the back
I did all the design work and illustrations, and helped to figure out how to print the book onto fabric ready to be cut out and stitched together.
The final fabric book is squishy and tactile….just like the EverWilde!
