Childrens Book Illustration


This year I’ve started to take an interest in the art of childrens books. It’s long been an ambition of mine to make a foray into this highly creative and respectable field and this year I’ve started to grasp the nettle.

In May and June I created five new illustrations designed to test my present capabilities. I managed to teach myself some valuable lessons while doing them, but most importantly I learned that I truly love the ethos of childrens book illustration.

The pieces you will see were all created using a new process I’ve been developing; I wanted each picture to have a wholesome ‘natural’ look, but at the same time I wanted to include a more digital-friendly depth of colour. When I recommence my drawing in August 2012 I hope to further this approach.
