Jimmy: Dream Sequence 2 by mlauritano Jimmy: Dream Sequence 2 by mlauritano
From the self-published book I was commissioned to do. Jimmy finally figures that he'll draw a rainbow 'to chase the rain away.'

Panoramic overhead view cities take a long time to draw.

A double page spread is when the illustration 'spreads' across the two pages of an open book.

I'm glad you like it!

Oh wow. Is this the one you were worried about being "too realistic"? I don't think it is at all. It certainly suggests realism, but in the same brilliant, vivid way in which children see the world and in which adults sometimes dream. I love the way you portrayed the rain and clouds--that's something a little kid will look at in the book and then observe with fascination in real life. :) Same with the progression from farmland to suburbs to city. Excellent!!

Nope, this isn't the one I was talking about--that's pages and pages away (the last illustration in the book). I'm happy you're seeing the progression I tried to make. Glad you're enjoying it!

I can see what you mean, you worked very hard on the perspective. Very dreamlike-atmosphere here, like what the title says. I also like the contrast between two forms.

Thanks, but which two forms might you be referring to?

The clear atmosphere with the turbulent cloud.

Well, it was basically all there in the text--how do you coherently combine the idea of rain and the idea of a sunny day in one full-bleed double page spread? Like this, I suppose.
