Still working on the illustrations


Still working on the kids book… Now it is a VW camper.

I have wondered if my illustrations are too detailed. But they are how I draw – I just hope they go with the writing…


Sorry the photo is bad but we have storms here and it is effecting the light badly.

  1. Kate all your illustrations are fabulous. 🙂 I really love them.
    Please don’t mind my asking, do you draw with a photo or a model (as you had mentioned in an earlier post) at hand or are you guided by the artists in you?

    1. It can depend on the subject. Take my latest – a VW camper. That I used a lot of reference because I didn’t really know what one looked like. And although it would be great to always use a model, a lot of the time I use photographs as they are easy to get hold of.

  2. I like the detail in this. I have often asked myself the same question… recently I have been embracing my technical drawing side and very happy with the results. I let myself be and do what comes naturally, even if the process start to finish takes much longer. 🙂

    1. It just seems right for the book I am illustrating. There is another book waiting and I have a feeling that it will be a much looser style.
