C. A. Seaman “Pauli Boerman” Preparatory illustration for Christopher’s book “Manna” Christopher said, “So the process of developing drawings from the computer images is ongoing. A lot of study and several test drawings later, this is where I want to go with Pauli, the main character. She is half Balinese Asian and half Dutch. Her hair will be dark mouse coloured and her eyes will be lighter than in the computer image. I haven’t decided on keeping them brown or making them green. This will be the first of three views- portrait, 3/4, profile. A full body model will follow soon.”
C. A. Seaman “Stanley Starling of the Air Museum” Coloured pencil on watercolour paper 9″ X 12″
Stanley Starling of the Air Museum. This character is based upon the bird that found itself inside the National Air Force Museum just before Christmas last year. I actually caught him for a minute, but he wriggled out of my hands. I’ve never held a bird before and found the experience to be amazing.
In the end, he was caught and taken outside to enjoy the holidays in freedom. I wrote a story inspired by the incident and will self-publish it when I find time to do the illustrations.
