Illustrating for Children

I was recently commissioned to produce 40 illustrations for a children’s publication. An anthology of short stories and poetry. It was one of the most challenging projects I’ve worked on. Trying to visually capture the essence of the poetry/short stories written by children and children’s authors was no easy feat. But it was a thoroughly enthralling journey none the less. My pencils are now blunt and tired but I think I’ve completed the project to the best of my ability… and boy what fun it was! 🙂

An ode to children and childhood.
