Children’s Book Illustration Master Class

I had an email from Galya, an art student from Wales, wanting to ask me questions for her dissertation. I made a video for her, which I thought might be interesting for others to watch too.

Here are her questions:

1. Do you think that the different areas of illustration(picturebooks, editorial, etc.) differ a lot in terms of the methods you use to visually communicate the idea or message that you want to convey and how?

2. Focusing specifically on your children’s books illustration, do you have to adapt your methods of illustration individually for each book? If so, in what way?

3. How do you select the colours that you use and is there a specific meaning or message in the colours you choose?

If this suggests questions you would like me to talk about on a video, please feel free to ask.

Here are the links to other videos mentioned in the video:
