Hola ! Welcome to my website :-)
Hello everybody, thanks for stopping by!
As this year is now drawing to a close I am recapping some of my recent projects accomplished this year.
I illustrated a children’s book that was published in February this year under Black Rose Writing called Why worry, William Wasp. The author, Rod Kelly is a wonderful children’s book writer with a vast array of titles, all of which share important messages with wonderfully adorable characters and are told with a strong humerous palette that both children and parents love!
Why worry, William Wasp is a delightful story about an overly cautious health and safety inspector who takes extra measures to ensure everyone in his town of Kilkirk are all safe. He also happens to be a wasp, and as such has a sting which he is so afraid might hurt somebody that he is scared of venturing out of the house.
I had a lot of fun designing William Wasp and his over the top health and safety uniform. He wears a safety hat and flourescent jacket at all times, even in the home and while cooking, infact, additionally he wears thick safety specs and oven gloves – you know – just in case! I made his little kitchen have hazard signs everywhere and all sharp objects are labelled as such.
One of my favourite pages to illustrate was him driving his car.
I enjoyed adding in surrounding details and with each frame I gradually zoomed out revealing characters such as an old lady and snails overtaking him.
The book is available to buy in many leading bookstores and of course on amazon >
