First book I illustrated! by Loleia First book I illustrated! by Loleia
As promised, here's a look at the first book I have ever illustrated!

It's the Spanish translation of a British book called "Dark Lord, The Teenage Years" by Jamie Thompson.

The original version has different illustrations, but the Spanish publisher (Alfaguara Infantil y Juvenil) decided they wanted a style that resembled the cover image (which I DID NOT DO by the way) more, and that's what I did! I had to use a style that was not my own, and it was a lot of fun, I won't lie :D

The book is aimed at 10 to 12 years old, so if you live in Spain and you know any, you can get this book pretty much in any book store I think.

You can even buy the e-book version here if you want:

AWESOME! This must be so exciting for you! It certainly would for me. It looks great, and even if you couldn't do a style that you would typically do, I think you did a fantastic job with what you had to work with. A challenge is always a good learning experience to have, often rewarding.

WOW

that looks super cute!

it makes me think of the kind of books I read when i was little.

very cute- and the irony of the title (I know you just illustrated it, but i'm commenting on the whole package) is ironically adorable.

Wow that's really cool!

I just got offered to illustrate 6 children's books, and this will be my first time professionally illustrating. Do you have any tips or tricks? Like what kind/size paper I should use to get the best quality image for print? ANything would help! Thank you!

and again, super cool that you were able to do this! The illustrations look awesome!
