Currently I’m working on a How to draw Ancient Greek Stuff book, which is proving more complicated that I’d imagined. The complications are mostly in the style and design of the book, which I want to be the basis of a continuing format.
Recently, when I mentioned it to a year three class – which would be 2nd Grade in the US – they cheered, what convinced me that I’m doing the right thing.
I’m planning to have all the artwork finished and the book ready early in the New Year, when I will launch it as a Kickstarter Project.
I’m already thinking about the next book in the series, so what do you think I should do next? Which subject matter would be most helpful in drawing generally or in school or home school curricula? I suppose this is market research. I’m turning into a publisher!
Today I’ve been at the children’s book festival – the great malarkey – in Hull which is on the East Coast of England. I’m the illustrator in Residence all week and will be filling my sketchbook up – have a look to see what I did today.
