Mummy Boy

(pages from the Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy by Tim Burton)

This project was based on a manuscript grid layout for a children’s book. The book I chose, though not what I would consider a typical children’s book, was ‘The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories’ by Tim Burton and of the many stories featured, in the book, I chose to recreate ’Mummy Boy’. The images in the original book were all creepily hand drawn, which I decided not to do, opting instead for stylized and playful digital illustrations. The project included the book cover, story title page and a two-page spread.
