When an illustration goes wrong – Illustrating Children’s books part 4

Yesterday, I showed you how I’d been illustrating winning stories from the Welsh Books Council Dahlightful schools writing competition See yesterday’s post here:

Today, in part 4, I’m showing you how I illustrated a story called The Real Ultimate Treasure Hunter by Ffion Haf Davies from Ysgol Gyfun G?yr.

It’s a fighting Fantasy kind of story, which is not the kind of book I read these days, nor the kind I illustrate. So I’m having to draw an illustration that both fits the genre but also the overall style of the book of stories written by the kids.

There’s a lot of philosopical chat and rumination in this video as I draw paint, realise its all wrong and do it again!
