Page 18 – was hungry, the friendly bees brought her honey (Artists and illustrators perspective)

As April continues on her journey, we see on this page the text describing the illustration of the previous page – her galloping into the sunshine on her trusty grasshopper mount.

The bees are illuminated as is her exclamation of joy. In that same vein another sound is illuminated, the Whoo-o-o of the wind.

That illumination is quickly followed by one of the bending trees. However the main illuminations on this page are the contained (framed) “dark” and the more open “homes”. Both are quite evocative of their subject matter.

About Danny Garrett

Danny Garrett, Digital Restoration Artist for "Princess April Morning-Glory" Danny Garrett is best known for his contributions to music ephemera of Austin, Texas, especially in its heady early days in the 1970s. His pen & ink poster portraiture advertising the latest shows were a must-have addition to any blues-lover who saw such greats as Muddy Waters, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy, and so many more at the legendary Antones nightclub.As computers came of age, Danny adapted and began working for digital game companies, later transitioning to teaching both traditional and digital art. While holding a tenured position at Auckland University of Technology in the Graphic Arts Dept., Danny developed digital techniques to restore Letitia’s artwork to its full glory, and render the previously unprintable pages, printable. Second only to Letitia, we would not finally be reading copies of Princess April Morning-Glory had Danny not graciously volunteered to take this project on.
