1. Daniel Dog takes the Sun to obedience school
    (Final colour and BW sketch)

    Illustration for poem, “Daniel Dog takes the Sun to obedience school” by Anne Bell. Published in The School Magazine, Orbit #9 2014.

    Trying out an old technique and combining it with new techniques. Took a while to get there but I love the result! 

     
  2. Nooshy and Pozo character drawings!

    N & P are puppets I did concepts for William and Sparkles’ Magical Tales and later got to do some character poses/drawings for kids activity books. Found them just now after digging through archives…

     
  3. Weedy Sea Dragon quick sketch studies
Been sooo busy busy… still am but I’ve been craving just to do some sketches/studies and found a bit of time waiting around for feedback… anyway, one of my fave creatures I’ve seen diving! Super rough… because I guess I should get back to work or something.

Sometimes I wonder if I should try and get permission from authors to post their poems/stories along with my illustrations! But anyway, hopefully you can figure what this one was about. Let’s just say working on Erky Perky helped a little. :)
