THE NORTH WIND AND THE SUN
ASSIGNMENT: Redesigning an Aesop's fable
Genre: Children's Fiction | Execution time: 3 hours | Softwares: Quark Xpress, Adobe Photoshop | Paperback
For this assignment, we were asked to interpret an Aesop's fable chosen for us by a fellow classmate. My title was 'The North Wind and the Sun'. I decided to challenge myself by illustrating the entire cover, and playing around with shapes and objects, filling them with various textures. I tried to give the objects and characters a paper cut effect. I decided to reveal only the wind on the front cover
and placed the sun on the back cover, so that a child's curious mind begins to engage with the front cover when he/she first picks up the book off the shelf, and begins to look out for the sun.
