Emily Gravett on YouTube

I really like Emily Gravett's illustrations, particularly her rabbits, so I was really interested when I came across a couple of videos on YouTube.  The first video I've posted shows Emily in her studio, drawing the character for the new book 'Cave Baby', written by Julia Donaldson (author of The Gruffulo). The second video shows Emily characters from her book The Rabbit Problem.  It's interesting to see how she works both traditionally and digitally on it.  I really want a Cintiq now! These videos were posted by MacmillanPublishers  :)

Just a quick post to show a watercolour sketch that I painted for my friend's new baby girl, Angharad :)

Illustration Friday - 'Star Gazing'

This week's 'Illustration Friday' is a painting I did of a fairy for a competition, back in January (it didn't win boo-hoo).  The title of the painting is 'Dancing in the moonlight' and I thought it was apt for this weeks topic 'star gazing'.
