The Magic Jar

I was commissioned to illustrate a children’s book which told the story of Eli, who would take his jar full of bugs everywhere, to the bemusement of his friends, neighbours, and even his pet dogs.

The author self-published the story, so there are only a limited number of books in existence.

Media: Ink, digital colouring and digital layout created in InDesign.
The cover of the book, and a single page found inside the book.
Eli pictured at school with a jar filled with bugs sitting in front of him.

Finally Eli shares the secret of his jar with his friends; it's not filled with any type of bugs, but fire bugs.
