a commission by TBWA to illustrate a book shelf as part of a project for books actually. each illustrator was given a book category to set the style and subject matter for the book shelf and i was being given the classics. decided to illustrate some timeless literary classics with the story character engaging in the single act of being engrossing in a book no matter where they are or what they're doing. I drew them in the classic book illustrative style using just black pens and markers to push out the intrinsic details.
took considerable amount of time to pen every panel down but it was well worth in the end looking at the entire book shelf coming together. see if you could identify the different classics illustrated here!
