Illustrating ‘The Magical Tree’

Maria Hernando was a student at Edinburgh College when her work was chosen to illustrate the story of The Magical Tree by author Eric Pullin.

Eric, who began writing for children after the birth of his first grand daughter, says the moment he saw Maria´s work, he knew that this was the artist that he wanted to illustrate his story.

The resulting collaboration is a lyrical mixture of collage, paper art and digital illustration. Poster Image 2 (2)

You can see more of the fruit of Maria and Eric’s labour at the Art and Design Library, which will be hosting an exhibition of artwork from the book throughout this month.
