This story is about humanity. It is a story for sharing, a story to encourage kindness.
The illustrations were created in encaustic art wax colours using a compact hotplate and stylus pro as the main tools. The waxes stimulate the imagination, a bit like seeing faces in the clouds or in the fire. And this particular set of images created a story which we probably already knew. What do you think?
The book is available to buy. It could be a lovely gift for friends or family, children or adults. And if you do buy it then you will be helping encourage more story books in wax, and perhaps more from The Wise Walker or some other characters that come to visit during the process of melting wax colours in the encaustic way.
The Wise Walker : a story for this time.
illustrated using encaustic art by Michael Bossom
All images created on the Compact Hotplate : A5 white card.
