Daniel Mackie, Artist Inspiration

Daniel Mackie is a British Artist and Illustrator specializing in watercolor design. He has a series of prints entitled "Animals in Their Natural Habitat." His inspiration is from Japanese prints, Art Deco and Henri Matisse. The prints on the cover of this book are entitled, Tiger's Child and A Word From the Wise. Mr. Mackie's prints are found on greeting cards.

Daniel inspired us to create our own Habitat Animals for our ABC Book. First, each student researched his/her animal, turning the information learned into a digital narrative: "Chatter Pix." Second, we looked for photos of the animal to create the animal silhouette. We used pictures of our animal habitat to first sketch, then paint our animal habitat with water color brush pens. We used the head portion of the animal photo to attach to our painting, followed by the black card stock overlay. The combination of color and contrast is stunning!
