A whole week sketching at The Big Malarkey Children’s Festival in Hull

A couple of weeks back, I spent the whole week recording The Big Malarkey Children’s Festival in Hull. It was an amazing week put on as part of the City of Culture celebrations. Here are all the videos I made in order.

Many thanks to the wonderful Library Staff who put the whole thing on with the help of all the festival volunteers. Thanks also to the performers and visitors who also appear on the pages of my sketchbook.

Illustrating Children’s Books

I’ve just finished page 140 of the Michael Morpurgo book that i’ve been illustrating all this month. That’s the last page – hooray! But then I didn’t like it, so I wanted to do it again.

This video will show you how I copy the illustration I didn’t like and turn it into one I do like.

Also there’s a load of chat about illustrating and techniques.
