Here is the final illustration I created for an unreleased special feature for the Paddington 2 Blu-ray, and it just so happens to be my favorite of the project.
This piece reminds me of an old Sunday school song I used to sing as a little kid “Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world…” which was itself inspired by Matthew 19:14 in the Bible, “but Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.'” This is kind of appropriate considering that in just this past week was Good Friday and Easter, the time of year traditionally honored by Christians as the day Christ made the ultimate sacrifice for mankind, and lived again for us to tell about it.
Hope that you have enjoyed seeing, this past week, my previously unrevealed set of drawings created for the Paddington 2 project. My sincere thanks to Constantine Nasr, the producer of those special features, for inviting me to be a part of it. It was a great project of which to be a part.
