Here is a sequence of sketches and roughs leading to the finished artwork of a page in Bruna.


Character sketch.
Page layout, rough.
Preliminary double page grid.
Altered page layout with the main image going
across the gully, plus two vignettes.
Finished artwork in watercolour and ink.


I show my sketches, roughs and original artwork to children in schools and colleges. Contact Gillian.

Here are two video clips: the first one shows the process of creating a picture book using images from two of my 'Dog on Wheels' books. The second clip is all about texture -  the sparkly texture of snow and the scratchy texture of the fur of a dog.

Working on a picture book from first sketches and layouts to completed artwork.


How texture is created by dissolving rock salt crystals in a watercolour wash and by scratching lines.
