When you’re asked to draw a dog & this happens!

A dog, yes. A cute dog, maybe? But a messy, scrappy, scatty dog too. This was for a very large format book and a smaller format Reading Scheme. I decided the best way to create the illustrations at colour stage was digitally. I chose to use a water colour palette in Photoshop. The line work was created by hand.

The work she produces is, of course, delightful and speaks for itself; but I was also impressed with her professionalism in firstly explaining to me exactly what the process was of commissioning her, and the way she produced the work well within the time frame she had said. Throughout, she was most obliging in incorporating adjustments or re-drafts I requested, and she was always so pleasant and helpful that I felt I was dealing with a personal friend. I would have no hesitation in asking her to illustrate for me again, or in recommending her to someone else. And she's fun
