Illustration-Friday - Tales and Legends


Tales and legends


When I was small I always love to hear my grandpa
telling me all kind of stories.

At night I be dreaming all this strange tales, one night I be sailing
across the ocean with my fellow crew searching for the mystery island
that may hidden the legendary treasures.

Another night I be lost in the dark forest, where the myths had it there will be wolfs,
monsters, ghouls and witches that hunt children at nightfall with mist growing thicker by the second.

Years gone by I've aged into an old man, I miss those exciting days.
Now I am telling my own version of tales and legends to my own grandson
Hope he can embrace the tales as I can.

(In memory of my own grandma, and to thanks to my parents for telling me story
in my youth days)

This is a real warm writing. I like your drawing too, reminds me of a great Chinese author and illustrator from last century, Feng Zi Kai.

This is lovely in its simplicity. Nice linework and great use of the little color you have.
