To celebrate the release of the first book in the Sir Foxley-Fox series, General Falconius Fox and the Roman Invasion of Britain written by Andrew Lauder and illustrated by Dan Ungureanu, The Lounge was given the wonderful opportunity to interview Dan about the book and his process.
Can you tell us about your path into professional illustration?
My first attempt to illustrate a book was in 2010, when I was invited to work on a small poem book for children and I couldn’t refuse the challenge. Before that project I had worked as a storyboard artist and character designer for an animation studio, so I found it very easy moving from one field to another. Also, in the past few years I had the chance to experiment different techniques and mediums, from painting (my bachelor degree) to graphic design and app design.
