Sketches for Ferdi!

Ive just begun work on a childrens book im illustrating….totally excited as its my first one!

Author JR Poulter, book designer Takara Beech & Word Wings publishing, are the awesome gang im working with…im very grateful for the oportunity, as not only is it a job, its also a great learning experience. As others artists know, its extemely competitive…getting into book illustrating not only takes hard work, you have to be of a calibre hign enough that publishers will be willing to give you a break…. this is exactly what Word Wings & Jen Poulter have done for me.

Im at the beginning of the process, developing characters for ‘Fabulous Ferdi-Horse With Heart’. The story is Very close to my heart,  which is something Jennifer is very clever at- selecting the perfect artist for each wonderful story she writes! I spent most of my life riding, training & racing horses, & my daughter did the pony club & kids racing circuit… i still love horses very much & any opportunity to ride & spend time with them is precious.

As i progress with the illustrations, i will be showing you some wips… i really hope you join me on this ride…& for those with children… release date is later this year, kids will totally fall in love with Ferdi & his friends…i know i have.

Cheers – ❤🦁🎨
