Well i couldn't resist giving you a little preview of the first illustration i am working on for this picture book commission which i mentioned.
To give a little more background to this, i received an email from a lovely lady who is a teacher and has written a very sweet little story for which she was looking for an illustrator and was pointed in my direction. I was very excited to get the email *YIPPEE!* as children's book illustration is what i have wanted to do for a long time (along with half the planet i think).
She doesn't have a publisher for it yet so we agreed it would be best if i just did a few illustrations for it in the first instance, so that she could send these along with her manuscript to a publisher.
So i've now started on the first of 4 and this is the outline image for it:
I can't really give away much more about it at the moment but hopefully in a few weeks time i'll be able to tell you some more about it.
Reet i better get on!
