Bringing History To Life For Kids
Neeb creates illustrations by replicating the styles of each culture he writes about. "My Egyptian stories are illustrated in the style of papyrus paintings. I drew the characters in two-dimensional style so readers could see how unique and beautiful Egyptian art is then I added texture with paint." His Chinese story was done with tea dyed paper to replicate the hue of ancient silk paintings. "It is so much fun to experiment and find ways to replicate ancient styles. I always include instructions in my books and on my website so readers can learn how I did my illustrations."
Neeb's historical picture books, Pharaoh's Arrow, Akia's Adventure and Duel With A Dragon, are available at online bookstores worldwide: https://www.amazon.com/
