So, after always liking my sketches, doodles more than a finished, clean illustration I've started to experiment with ways of keeping the vivacity and charm of the sketch in my finals. I've started using vellum, the photocopier and lots of white-out to compose the final picture and this is a small experiment. I want to do more and play further but it's a start and I'm quite pleased.
Also, check out "The Magic Pencil" website (http://magicpencil.britishcouncil.org/) for a great survey of current British book illustration including profiles on Sara Fanelli, Quentin Blake, Raymond Briggs and John Burningham as well as others.
