Past Works: Macmillan Children’s Illustrator Award for Africa 2008

I had the privilege of partaking in the recent Macmillan Children’s Illustrator Award for Africa. I submitted two versions of the the selected briefs I chose to work on. I was interested in seeing how I could use vector software CorelDRAW 12 to achieve the same level of illustration I could achieve by either painting in Photoshop or using watercolours.

Which version do you prefer?

The first illustration brief is about a girl named Wandi. Below is the watercolour illustration.

Here is the vector illustration version.

The second brief is about a newspaper boy called Ben.
Here is the Photoshop illustration, which was also selected as the winning entry.

And here is the vector version.
Which illustration do you like more?
