Haroun And the Sea of Stories- Cover and Splash page

This assignment is from my Illustration II class last year. The assignment was to take a story and create a silhouetted cover and double page spread for it.

A cover for the story Haroun and the Sea of Stories. It's a good book, for kids and adults, mixing the art of stories with comedy, action and fantasy and creating an Arabian Nights-esc tale. You can look it up here:

And a splash page for the story. This is one of my favorite scenes from the book and was so much fun to draw. The text is a direct quote from the book.
