The Kernel

So the quarter is over. I’m really going to enjoy this week off. With that being said, it is time to share with the world the children’s book I illustrated. I’m pretty stoked with how it turned out. I’m glad that I was able to take the class. It ended up being one of my favorite classes. It was class that was based on illustrating, and I really enjoy illustrating. I found it really interesting how it was set up, and I mean that in a good way. The stories that we were given to illustrated, were written by other students at the school who were in a creative writing class. Our class was given three different stories, so that means that multiple students were given the same story to illustrate. It was cool being able to see the different styles, and that no two books looked remotely the same. Overall I think the class went very well.

The story I illustrated is called The Kernel. It is about a boy named Little Jack who decides to eat the last kernel in his popcorn bag. Before doing so, he thinks back to what his fathers warning about eating the last kernel. He decides to go forth anyways and comes to the quick  realization that his father was right. Eating the last kernel is a bad idea. The story was written by Maury Covington. I chose to illustrate the story using watercolor and black ink.
