#31DC2016: Inspired by a Book

I don't know about you guys, but I am stoked that one of my favorite childhood books is finally being made into a movie. The cast is to die for as well. Mindy Kaling as Mrs. Who, Oprah as Mrs. Which and Reese Witherspoon as Mrs. Whatsit. If you don't know what I'm talking about, I need you to get a copy of A Wrinkle in Time immediately.

While searching for inspiration I came across this cool graphic novel style artwork by Hope Laresn about the opening. I decided to try and recreate that look. I started with a base of ILNP After Midnight. 




I then used Cirque Colors Memento Mori (black), Cirque Colors Carpe Diem (white),  Cirque Colors Meet Me In Montauk (pale blue) to recreate the look. Obviously, my freehand skills need ALOT of work, but I tried. So...yeah. It is what it is.







Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

  1. Wrinkle in Time was one of my favorite books. I gave it to my 9yo, and she kinda shrugged at it.

    It's ok, I still have her little sister to convert.
