Another illustration for the "Fables De La Fontaine" book I was working on during the passed few months.

This is probably my favourite piece from the book (along with davidkawena.deviantart.com/art… ). The combination of winter and a vast forest with tall trees was so inspiring to me, as these are 2 of the things that makes me feel most alive... It was a real pleasure to draw this piece, so much so, that I actually felt a bit sad when I finished it, as the rest of the book didn't call for these kind of views and atmosphere.

This drawing also holds a special place in my heart.

The "Fables De La Fontaine" book has been released in France last month, and is available in 2 versions: a big book+CD, and as a CD, with the stories in the CD booklet.

It is also available on Amazon.fr:
Book+CD: www.amazon.fr/Chantons-Fables-…
CD: www.amazon.fr/Chantons-Fables-…

Have a Great Week Everyone :hug:

The cold quiet of falling snow is warmed by the glow of light from the home in the nearby tree.

An enchanting scene. I think my favorite part may be the 'spiral staircase' made from mushrooms.

I love the retro, decades-gone-by style you've used here. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy - like picking up a book from my childhood might. I can see this hanging in a library over a quiet reading nook - you could dream an entire story around it in your head. Great work!
