Illustrating Monkey’s Wedding

I got the idea from YA author and illustrator Catherine Stine’s October 11th blog where she posted an illustration that she’s in the process of refining for the YA futuristic novel she’s written.  Seems the illustrated YA is coming of age, what with the popularity of graphic novels.  There are so many classic African scenes in Monkey’s Wedding that makes this an exciting proposition, from the old witch doctor’ Anashe’s hut, to the jackal dragging a dead body from a shallow grave to this scene: Three hundred yards to the left of Elizabeth and Tururu, five eland buck appeared out of nowhere and floated on a heat wave past the jagged outline of his people’s ruins. 

The process continues.
