“…And Ailsa was walking on the water. She was walking, she was running, she was skimming the surface like a seagull….”
I am taking part in Illustration Lab this year. The course is organised by Scottish Booktrust and lead by Vivian French. It has been a delightful and valuable experience. I’ve learned loads about the publishing industry and got to meet Val Brathwaite from Bloomsbury Publishing, Catherine Rayner and even Nick Sharratt!
We were given a task to illustrate an extract from a book. I got really inspired and decided to create a tiny animation on top of my illustration piece. I have created some beautiful textures of the sea, experimenting with sea salt, paint and soap, and animated the ocean and a magical run/fly cycle and to add some life to my illustration task.
