I've been creating a DPS where the cat is falling and here are two examples of experimenting with his expression. I remember Anna Violet saying to me that publishers don't like and children's books don't have teeth in the characters and you can see from this first image why!
An exhibition to visit this weekend. It's been a while since I made anything with paper so will no doubt come away inspired to get my craft knife out again :)
OWT Creative are one of those exhibiting and published my first image "Voyage" in my first year.
I have made changes to my final Bouncing image. After developing my character I have included the new Biscuit and after painting an extra magpie realised that it looked better than the first few so redid them all. I haven't decided whether this page needs text. I could add text bouncing up and down across the fence or leave it blank. It is a humorous image that doesn't really need explanation.
I found this review about the National Art Fund Pass. It looks like a great idea to have one. I have a national trust card but to get in to gallery exhibitions and museums… for free would be fantastic. It would give me an excuse to go down to London and over to the Liverpool Tate more often.
I received an email from Anna Violet yesterday inviting me to a drawing event at the Science Museum which I will be attending at the end of the month. I tend to avoid mechanical and man-made structures so I thought this would be the perfect way to face my fears with other children's book illustrators and hopefully make more useful connections in the industry.
