The Concept Phases

The amazingly talented Kielen King  reached out to me with an amazing story of a wonderful little shuttle who wanted to learn, explore and have fun. After hearing his passion for this character and his love of space (like my own) I knew I had to help him bring Ion to life.

I wanted to give him various options on how we could bring Ion’s story to fruition. So I presented a few different texture feels and color schemes while trying to come with the best possible storytelling setting for Ion as the Kielen imagined him.

The initial product was the cover and two interior pages to start the Kickstarter. I really imagined Ion’s world as a colorful adventurous place and I was lucky enough to make it come to life!
