WICKED NURSERY RHYMES COVER by GrisGrimly WICKED NURSERY RHYMES COVER by GrisGrimly
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]

You should. They are a bit more explicit whereas the originals were subtly wicked.

I cannot recall where I first saw these - on some online site, that's for sure - but simply remember flipping out and wishing to get them. Just from the cover this looks like it would just be a wonderfully dark book.
Hopefully I can make a grab at it soon. :heart:

Oh, cool!! If so, you all were selling story books. I got a free sample, but you caught me when I had little money, so I couldn't buy anything from the handout thing that was given to me. . . . .if it's not you, then I'm sorry for the mixup! ^ ^"
