Here are four illustrations for Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens that I have created recently for the upcoming Bologna Children’s Book Fair. In my research for this project, I wasn’t entirely bound to my drawing board. I went on excursions out into the world and drew old buildings and their wonky beams and windows. Oliver Twist was always a favourite of mine ever since childhood so now it is lovely to have found the time to illustrate some of its most exiting moments.

I have decided to revisit this image and draw it again to see how I have improved over the last 8 months since I originally drew it’s predecessor. Evidently I feel that my 8 months ago self was seriously lacking knowledge of the way the world looks. Here below is the original image, and above is the new and hopefully improved image. Onwards and upwards.
