Chadwick's Challenge

Chadwick's Challenge - Children's Book Illustration & Digital Painting, Adam Celeban 2013

October 2013–2014. Digital Painting (Photoshop).

Written by Sue Ruffle, Chadwick's Challenge is a story about a young kookaburra conquering his fear and learning to fly. Pictured above is an early sample spot illustration from the book, and is a taster, as the book is still in production. It shows Chadwick being taken under the wing of his uncle Apari, and confiding in him.

Drawing Dreams

The Turbit - Adam Celeban 2012

November 2012. Pencil and Marker.

These two characters were created for Drawing Dreams, a charitable organisation that helps to cheer up sick kids in hospitals. The quackamoose and turbit are my two contributions to their soon-to-be-released colouring book "Zularious Animals".

Trevor the Meerkat

Trevor the Meerkat - Adam Celeban 2012

Trevor, pictured in the above sheet of poses and expressions, is a character I've been slowly developing for a children's storybook currently titled "King of the Mountain". He's the inquisitive protagonist who "one day stood up and took notice", and he's on a quest to have a puzzling question answered.

High Tea at the Top End

High Tea at the Top End - Childrens Book Illustration & Digital Painting, Adam Celeban 2012

September 2012. Digital Painting (Photoshop).

This piece is a sample spread for the Children's Book, currently titled "High Tea at the Top End". The idea for it came to me suddenly simply as the thought: Crocodiles in duck fascinators. I used this project particularly as a vehicle to develop my recent visual ideas of Australian landscapes and colours, and further hone my own individual style. To the left, you'll also notice some character development sketches.
