Children’s book illustration is a huge passion of mine as it elaborates and clarifies the meaning of text and encourages children to read by transforming stories into something fascinating and exciting.
As a child I did not read but would always draw and loved creativity. I love the prospect of encouraging children worldwide to read and understand stories better through my illustrations.
This project illustrates the children’s book ‘The Island of Adventure’ by Enid Blyton. This page shows a selection of the 54 illustrations created for the book.
My illustrations are collage based and combine cut outs with ink drawing and textured backgrounds. They are designed to look weird, scary and exciting to the young reader. The illustrative style created is intended to be distinctive by its freakish nature.
