Illustrations with concept
This 'wideshot' shows some characters I designed for my project and concept art book 'Game of fruits'. Game of fruits is a nod to the tv-series “Game of Thrones”, because of the fierce competition between the birds.
This story is about an ornithologist who finds a special tree on his trip to Papua New Guinea. The inhabitants are unique bird species that developed ingenious insect catching strategies.
At night when ornithologist Bertil Bretel is in the tree with his camouflaged vehicle, he suddenly hears an amazing sound. With the spotlight he illuminates the branch before him. A beautiful coloured bird appears, "It's the Broadway bird!"
Broadway bird: This diva is the star of the jungle. While her cheeks are filled with firefly eggs, she does her act. By the light that appears from her cheeks, she attracts a huge amount of insects. Other birds come and see her. There are some who wants insects as well, but others come to enjoy her performance.
Caterpillar birds: These little birds bundle up real tight with each other when they see a possible prey. Sitting together, they look like a caterpillar and then they attack the prey.
Stinkie Durian bird: This bird looks like the durian, a stinking but delicious fruit of Thailand. The bird farts! The smell attracts a cloud of insects.
Pomegranate birdie:This bird has evolved into the looks of a
pomegranate. He hangs upside down and gives the impression always being in a bad mood.
