Steven Petruccio

Tippy’s Cocoon

the work and its author

Working with self publishing authors gives me bit more freedom creating characters and settings. A crude sketch from the author was a far cry from what Tippy the caterpillar finally became. I was able to use Tippy to express the feelings she needed to show in “ Can The Sad Come Out”. It’s important to me that the characters I create are accurate portrayals even though they may become a bit stylized. I try to get a feeling from the text and let that lead me toward the “look” of the artwork for a story. (Digital painting)
