I’ve moved on to my final chunk of tight roughs. These pages take place in a nebulous sort of dream place and it’s fun coming up with dream imagery. However, as my own dreams often involve pursuit by zombies, I’ll refrain from relying on personal experience and instead pull from the pool of things I have most fun drawing. Jellyfish drifting through space? Sure. Humpback whales diving through the clouds. Of course!
Firebird/the sun + reference.

Pursuit by zombies!? What kind of movies have you been watching?
🙂 believe it or not, they’re stress dreams, brought on by kid’s book illustration.
I love your work and enjoy reading your blogg. I am an illustrator living in Amsterdam. Most of my work is digital, but my hands get itchy when I see your lovely pencil drawings! it’s very inspiring to me!
Keep it up.
Thanks so much, Diana!
And thanks for dropping by, all the way from Amsterdam. 🙂
Stumbled across your site today – just wanted to say how much I enjoyed reading (and seeing) your process. It’s seemingly rare to see an illustrator share their process in the way that you do so thank you – it’s a real privilege to be able to see this! 🙂
Thank you, Shona. I’m always keen to see other illustrators’ process so I figure it’s only fair to share mine too!
