Published Book Illustrations

Way back in February I gave you a sneak peak of some illustrations I was working on for a children's educational text book. The process I used to create these sketches was a straight forward approach. After a few rough sketches, internet research and observational sketches, the initial image is drawn out. I then use a combination of Staedtler fine-tipped pens and Windsor and Newton permanent markers for the cross-hatching, texture and fine detail.

'Think Talk', a critical thinking book for Key Stage One has now been published and I wanted to share the final images with you. The written text tasks are written by Sally Paggetti and Valsa Koshy.







 A few close up sections of the images used in the book. I am really happy that most of the illustrations got used in the final book.

    1. Thanks Alex. Yes, it's really cool seeing the little illustrations dotted throughout the book. Not all the images in the book are mine though - they used some stock clip art ones as well.
