Picture Book Sketch by MarcoBucci
Picture Book Sketch
Could this be the origin of the infamous Green Monster? 
(Page rough from my picture book in progress.)
Jungle Book Novel Cover by MarcoBucci
Jungle Book Novel Cover
I painted this for Disney's Jungle Book novel, which was released with the film. It went through months of revisions, but in the end, they didn't use it. At least I can finally share it!
Watercolour's In Season by MarcoBucci
Watercolour's In Season
It's spring, folks. And that means one thing: watercolour's back in season!
Picture Book Rough and Final by MarcoBucci
Picture Book Rough and Final
Another rough vs. Final illustration for "Norbert's Big Dream", a picture book that's coming out in August!
You can pre-order it here:…

Anyway, I usually do my rough drawings with a big fat marker (in photoshop). That way, I can lay down both line and tone with one brush. As you can see, this page got fairly heavily revised - blowing out the entire left side of the barn to help stage the composition better. Also, Norbert the pig (left) is more "finished" in comparison to the animals on the right, to subtly direct your attention there. Helps that he's bathed in light, too. This book was fun to illustrate!
Hey folks! 
I'm proud to say that the next picture book I got to work on last year is now available for pre-order! It's called 'NORBERT'S BIG DREAM'. It's about a pig (Norbert!) who dreams of feats of swimming. Super cute. Had lots of fun with it, and I was even fully encouraged to paint in my style.  
Here's the Amazon link:…

Love what you do! Your watercolour street sketches are brilliant - I love the one you inspired kaikogf to do, and was wondering if I could use it as inspiration for a short story, which I would happily share with the two of you?
MarcoBucci Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2016
Thank you! And absolutely, I'd be flattered.

I'm back at work as of today, but will try and find the time to write something worthy of that painting :)
