Leila Blue

And finally here it is, I can show you the cover of my first illustration book!
I've been working on it in the past months and still am actually, as it's going to be a series of 4 volumes. The story is very sweet, I admit I utterly enjoyed reading it!
So this is the final look of the main character, it's pretty different from my first sketches :)
I haven't seen it printed yet, so I'm very curious about it. I'll post pictures as soon as I get to grab one copy!
The book is out on the 21st of September! Yay Leila!

Oh, and yes. It's all done in good old Flash ;)

They say never judge a book by its cover but judging from the cover of Leila i know its going to be a wonderfully Illustrated feast for the eyes. I cant wait to see the beautiful work you have given to Leila and her friends ;)
Congratulations! Awesome work.

Beh l'iilustrazione è proprio carina e simpatica.
Ha un po' della streghetta moderna, con le ballerine rosse in memoria di quelle di Oz, i jeans e il coprispalle.
E' un racconto per bambini da che età più o meno?

Complimentissimi comunque!

Ha un po' della streghetta moderna: jeans, ballerine il tutto accompagnato da questo vestitino favoloso a pois che è leggermente più lungo proprio come va di moda adesso...

Il target di lettura è per bambini o ragazzi?
Da che anni?

Ciao e complimenti!

Grazie di cuore a tutti!
Thank you so so much everyone :)

VenusInVirgo, the book is just in Italian at the moment, I guess if it goes well other publishers might get interested in it, who knows? :)
I'm pretty sure you can find it online, places like might ship internationally. Anyway if you need any help just let me know.

Alyces77, grazie :) La scarpetta rossa dovevo metterla a tutti i costi! Il target dovrebbe essere 6-10 anni, ma devo dire che quando una storia e' ben scritta fa bene a tutte le eta', io la sto adorando ;)

This looks so cute Ale ! Such a sweet character Leila is. I can't wait to see it.

Fantastic work Alessandra! The design of the cover is gorgeous. I particularly like the final glossy print.
I don't think I'll wait for the English version. My Italian is terrible, but sure, I'll only be looking at the pictures anyway.
I can't wait to see more.
