This is the cover for the first Wicked Nursery Rhymes 2003. All done in watercolor and ink. I usually use 140lb Cold Press paper with a coarse texture. Windsor Newton is my choice for watercolors, brushes and inks. But mostly use mechanical pens for inking whereas Rapidograph is my poison.
Since I'm being asked so much...this IS a real book and available on Amazon or my site at madcreator.com: [link]
