Slinky Malinki

illustrated children’s book

Slinky Malinki by Lynley Dodd is a story I remember fondly from my childhood, and wanted to update with new illustrations. Slinky Malinki is a playful, adventurous cat by day and a kleptomaniac by night. I focused on the expressive potential of Slinky’s character and the potential for dynamic and exciting visuals to accompany the narrative. Bright colors and whimsical compositions echo the playful tone in which the story is written. As Slinky accumulates his loot, the illustrations become more and more chaotic until the plot reaches its climax, after which Slinky resolves never to steal again.
