Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
I was approached and briefed by Candlewick Press to illustrate this book.

How was the illustration used:
In a picture book published in September 2021

How did you make this work:
From the thumbnail stage right up to the final artwork, all illustrations were made digitally using a variety of textured brushes. Being a true story set in the early 20th century, it was important to accurately portray the world inhabited by the characters. As well as general online research, I used photos and info from my own books. Mara (The author) also had a wide variety of text and photos.
