Inspired by the story about Junko Tabei, the first woman to ever climb the Mount Everest, I made this illustration series. I started with research into the personality of Junko, her expressions and how to portray her. Subsequently, I placed her in an environment and designed a cover with the story about ‘The Ladies Climbing Club’.
All this within the context of the online course ‘Illustrating Children’s Books’ of Make Art That Sells by Lilla Rogers.
