When commissioned to illustrate a children’s adventure story I adopted the traditional technique of using pen and ink. I love the wobbly, scratchy aesthetic and although you can recreate that digitally there is something unpredictable about using ink. It gives the work a depth and quality that can be difficult to reproduce digitally.
Children’s book illustration is one area I’m really interested in. I can’t think of anything better than being involved in helping a great story and its characters come to life.
