ILLUMINATION: THE ART OF LEE WHITE

45.00

After illustrating more than 20 published children's books for the big guns in New York (including Penguin Putnam, Scholastic, Candlewick, and more), Lee wanted to share some of the work he does when not illustrating for clients.

People always ask me about the inspiration behind my work so this seemed like a great place to share that with you. Many of these images can be found on Lee's website at www.leewhiteillustration.com

One of the things Lee really wanted to do with this book is highlight the process of making the finished paintings. Lee says "Many ugly sketches are explored and discarded along the way. I like sharing this process with people. It shows that there is a "building" phase that images go through. Hazy, rough ideas are cleaned up, polished, and finally painted as a finished piece. I wanted to invite you inside my studio to see how this all happens.

I wanted to share who all these characters are in the paintings. What are they doing and where did they come from? This is the storytelling aspect of illustration that I love exploring. "
