Above are samples of the illustrations I created for ‘Drawing a Veil’ written by Lari Don.
What is essential for creating illustrations is to set aside plenty of time for life drawing. For this project I sought out appropriate places where I knew it would benefit from reference. I visited a school to draw classrooms, corridors, stairs and the playground. I visited a children’s playground and a busy road. It is best to draw reference on location rather than take photos and draw when you get home. I enjoyed creating these illustrations and thank all the people from Bloomsbury A&C Black and Lari Don for giving me such a lovely job to do!
