Jewish Haggadah Children's Book 2006















I have been wanting to post this for quite a while and finally have the time to get to it. It was my first commission to do illustrations for a client's personal Haggadah. It turned out as well as it could have but I had to think back on all the important information about values, contrast and composition I had learned at school. Hope yall enjoy and leave some comments.

Nice choices sir. I like the baby one too. They were all done on illustration board in acrylic. I got a nice texture using clear medium and when I put paint layers over it and it gave a nice papyrus texture that I loved. Thanks for the comment buddy.
