Caldecott Brief. The Jackdaw and the Doves
The piece of work I submitted for the Caldecott Competition. I used the story 'The Jackdaw and the Doves' by Randolph Caldecott. A crow disguises himself as a dove by covering himself in paint, he then lives with the doves until he lets out an 'almighty creak' and they kick him out of their cote. He goes back to the other jackdaws but they don't recognise him so they wont accept him either.
I have created the birds by hand out of maps of Chester, then I digitally compiled them before adding computer and hand lettering.
