Book Cover - An African Orchard
As an illustrator, I sometimes make book covers. I have made a few for a very talented author, Mavis Pachter. For her latest book, An African Orchard, I recorded the process of illustrating the book cover. Where many of my illustrations are done digitally, I decided that this quite romantic story should be done in watercolour. So here is how the cover of An African Orchard came to be.
Surmulerum? Well ... it's our "Den" of creativity, the place where our ideas happen and come together.
We have just bought a Fiat E-Ducato van to convert into our ultimate dream camper-van. We are documenting the whole build on our channel. We are going to fit as much solar panels on the roof as possible and have planned some inventive transformative design features to maximise space inside. We are determined to show that, even in a small space, you can still do your hobbies. Our van will be designed in a way that we still have space to create our favourite things … and make videos about it, at the same time as travelling Europe.
We are also trying to be environmentally conscious and aim to create minimum waste and zero single-use plastic. We eat plant-based food and you can expect some recipes and videos both here and on our YouTube channel.
