Here's the book!






"Leila Blue" vol.1 - Mondadori

I grabbed a few copies of "Leila Blue" on tuesday but I've been so busy wrapping the illustrations of volume 2 that I've barely looked at it. Well, so here it is!
And it's super glossy! That feature actually came as a big surprise, I thought the border was going to have a regular matte lilac finish. Even the tiny windows shine as they catch the light! ...Ok enough with the girly rambling :)
Anyway, I must say it's a pretty sweet book, nice and thick. I'll take more pictures as soon as I can!
For those who asked it, the illustrations are in black and white, plus 16 full-color pages.
160 pages - 14 x 20 cm (5.5" x 7.8")

wow, too long since I checked out your stuff. Lookin good, miss. Congrats on the nomination, even though i'm pretty late. Part of me wished Kell's one, simply because it was the most distinctive of the films: heh, but there's also a Pixarfanboy in me that just can't seem to be outraged...

I'll check out your illustration book sometime, scouts honor :)
