ADVENTURE ISLAND LIBRARY by laresistance ADVENTURE ISLAND LIBRARY by laresistance
Illustration 1 in THE LIBRARY SERIES ( 8 more to go. in less than 2 days ! )

I did 9 interviews for the national libraries with young people about their ideal library. The 12-year old boy here wanted an adventurous one, at night, including a camel, a pre-Columbian temple, a hanging bridge, a booby trap for anyone who likes romantic novels, explorers, a jungle with animals, a mountain, a rafting river, sand, torches and a zeppelin. I left out the zeppelin though. He didn't want a skeleton in there, but I did it anyway. skulls are cool.

A3 drawing. Faber Castell B-pen. colours in photoshop.

A 'booby trap for anyone who likes romantic novels' sounds like just about the best idea ever.

I feel for the camel, it looks like he's gonna have trouble getting away once that tiger manages to get around the 'You Are Here' sign.

laresistance Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2010
word ! The boy actually added : it should hurt the people but not kill them. very sweet, but I put a crocodile in it anyway, gnar gnar.

that camel may well be 3 different animals, but either way he's proper fucked. Unless he knows karate

yeah ! I finally finished the drawings after a crazy sketching day and inking session of 8 hours against the clock. less than an hour per A3 drawing. a personal record, I think. And I then put them all in frames and brought them by car to the exhibition at the library. what a crazy night.. fell asleep like a log yesterday night

I'd say that it's the ideal library (especially with the reading skeleton.) But why in the name of Page, Plant, Bonham, and Jones did you leave out the zeppelin?!

Gosh, I just noticed the booby trap for the romance readers. It's really a nice project, I'm a big fan ! Drawing stuff after children requests (or descriptions) fits with your style, it's really sweet !
