I was recommended to the author by a previous client and after a brief meeting started to sketch out some ideas of what Penelope might look like after the initial brief of how she was pictured by them.
I actually scribbled out the final character on a small bit of paper while waiting for a bus.
I worked initially just doing rough sketches for each page and plotting how the layout would look, we quickly established that we needed to cut the wording down for each page so more illustrations would be required.
I’m really pleased with the outcome of the book and since we’ve been into schools to do a reading/ drawing exercise with the kids which is really good fun as well as running drawing competitions with other schools around the country.
The author has other stories in the pipeline with a view to me illustrating those as well.
