I Dreamed of a Zebarish

The last part of this project was the print images to create a book. Instead of writing a book first with words then adding the images. I wanted to have the print illustrations completed before writing the book. After the images where completed, I thought about how the chimera would survive. First by thinking about the different parts of the animal, whether it was part fish or part viper or carnivore. Then what did it eat, did it hunt or run on the plains, all of these things played in to the what the animal is doing in the book. For the most part I wrote it with children in mind to read and enjoy it, but it can be enjoyed by all ages. Here are some sample spreads from the book.
