Front cover illustration for 'Alligator Snaps: Poems For Children' (2014) 

A4 in size - Inks and pencils

I was lucky enough to get to do 7 or 8 illustrations for a children's poetry book back in 2014. With the front cover I wanted to have a scary looking alligator as a glove puppet alongside some funny fish - something visually catching. I was given free reign to pretty much come up with anything I wanted throughout the book and it's probably my favourite project to date as I was able to mix up my cartoon style with a slightly more detailed approach, an keep the bold colours I often use in my portraits. Kids seem to love the book too - and their feedback is the best ever.
