Been a while since I last blogged.....as an excuse I blame work. I've been religiously working on the finishing and revising illustrations for a title released through Walker Books.
Last weekend also saw another successful Balingup's 'Telling Tales' event. With an increase in children participating in writing, illustration and storytelling workshops - run by children's book writers and illustrators. The vibe was really positive.
I ran several illustration workshops, admiring much of the work produced by some extremely talented kids. Unfortunately it is also sad to see many kids imaginations are limited - possible due to rare participation in creativity...
During 'Telling Tales' I also found time to give art demonstrations throughout the day. This was mainly concentrated into this piece, 'Gnomesville'. Painted in watercolour and gouache over ink.
