The Adventures of Baraka Blackbird
The Adventures of Baraka Blackbird is an illustrated storybook for young readers. The story features the escapades of a little Blackbird and the various avian characters she encounters on her trip round the world. I enjoyed reading the story and coming up with designs for the different characters in the tale. 
A wrap-around cover illustration featuring the main characters in the story (except the Mbuyu tree) and the different environments Baraka Blackbird visited. 
The pencil illustrations were painted in Adobe Photoshop. Here are a some images from the pencil art.
