Great gallery, I enjoyed almost your every drawing, especially this surrealistic fox.
Do you use watercolors first and the do the outlines with ink? Looks like you do not plan what your are going to create, seems like your creatures are coming out by themselves?

I put down the outlines first. Then I colour everything with watercolour.
There isn't much planning involved.
Thanks for looking through all of it.

For some reason all of your drawings remind me of "Where the wild things are" (In a good way! It was my favourite book!) and lots of fruit! Anna x

Kiwi!

Melted chocolate concoctions and iced grapes.
Thank you! :heart:

Thanks. It's all watercolour, I lay it down in thick layers and then I dab it with tissue.

The addition of the little boots and skirt thing were perfect.

I did not see this.
Why did I not see this.
Super use of colour, as ever. I love his skirt, but I'm even in more love with the colour, how they blend. Like a supernova in the sky (:
For the next Jackadaw book will you actually bind a book? They're quite easy to make, but I'm not sure how to make one with a proper spine.

That's so cool you can tell he's a boy! Thanks Molly! :heart: :heart:

I'm gonna use blurb.com, where you can pay to print up books. Normally meant for portfolios and gifts, it's awesome.
They give you a free software to lay it out and everything. [link]

My pleasure (:
He's as masculine as a rainbow dog in a skirt with stockings you'll ever get, ha.
Will you be selling them, or is it just another gift for Willow? I wouldn't be able to buy one, but I'm pretty sure there might be someone else out there who might like a copy.

Maybe... I have been thinking about it lately, but for now, I want to print and give them away for free, friends and family.
I'd love to send one to you if you like, I'd be more than happy!
