Illustration Technique
By Kristin Blackwood

Let’s Go Green!

This book was made from 98% recycled paper. Using recycled paper saves trees. We used soy inks to give Elefante and his friends their wonderful bright colors.

We did not stop there. Our illustrator Kristin Blackwood reused items she had lying around her house to create the art for Elefante. She did not purchase any supplies for the book, but used items that were slated for the trash can. She used an old sponge, a bread wrapper, a straw, sand paper, bubble wrap, a map, scraps of paper from the floor of her studio, a used bandage and a water bottle. . . to name a few. See if you can find these items in the illustrations.
