Mrs. Frisby and Jeremy

Book: Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH
(purchase on Amazon)

“He was tied to the fence. A piece of something silvery – it looked like wire – was tangled around one of his legs; the other end of it was caught in the fence. Mrs. Frisby walked closer, and then she could see it was not wire after all, but a length of silver-colored string, probably left over from a Christmas package.”

This is the scene where Mrs. Frisby first meets Jeremy – the young crow who later brings her to a wise owl who introduces her to the rest of her journey.

I wasn’t sure what style I would approach this book with. In the end, I’ve come up with something still slightly new to me, so I hope you will bear as I experiment with multiple media and styles in one illustration!
