The Star of the Show

The Star of the Show follows a child called Violet as she deals with feelings of disappointment and embarrassment at not being cast as the lead in the play. She eventually discovers that there are lots of different ways to be important as well as being the star.

This project involved location drawing and drawing from film to establish the story’s setting and atmosphere, followed by a process of making versions of each spread many times, then editing and refining them to create the final book. I most enjoyed drawing the buildings and hairstyles.

The book was printed at Good Press on Munken paper and hand-bound. The covers are screenprinted and each is unique in colour and pattern.
