Daniel Long on illustrating How to Survive Anywhere
I’ve been eagerly waiting for this to be published (I think I sent all the final art this time last year)
because it has been one of my favourite projects to date; it combines several things that I find interesting… the animals are obvious, I’ve always been amazed by the natural world (that probably comes from growing up 1/4 mile from a zoo) but also my interest in the human side… survival, bushcraft, shelter building and those sorts of things.
From a illustration standpoint I really enjoyed it too because each habitat/part of the world starts with a full(ish) page spread. This allowed me to give each a very different colour palette and feel that continued through into the following pages on the same habitat. This also allowed me to play around a lot with different lighting which is something I’ve been trying incorporate more into my work
