I am working on a series of short board books, based on the graphic style of my Bake a Cake book but with simpler and more toddler friendly themes (well thats the plan!!)

The Owl & the Pussycat








These are pages from my new illustrations for Edward Lear's classic nonsense rhyme.I love the humour and atmosphere of the verse and as I wanted to illustrate a children's classic for part of my Master's project it seemed to fit the bill. I have had a lot of fun designing the characters.
