I really enjoyed working on this book -
'Aunty Edna of Duck Creek Pond' by Irish/Australian author Nigel Gray. Here's an initial scribble from the beginning of the process. Literally dozens of drawings in different styles are produced to get the feel of the characters. In the end the result is often quite different from my initial ideas.
Nigel Gray is a widely published author
across a vast array of genres, including
many books for children.
