Known for creating bizarre characters and illustrating odd children’s books, such as “Poo! You smell!”.
“Drawing quirky characters and animals is one of my favourite things to do. I like to experiment with different textures and colours, and usually start off by making a sketch in pencil. I use photoshop to colour, but I also use inks and pencil crayons occasionally.” – Hailstone.
I find the background of the particular image shown above of Hailstone’s to be useful as I like the simplicity of the shapes of foliage, it is clear enough to what the details are, yet the lines are not overly complicated, which makes good reading for younger audiences.
Cathy Crowe: Worked with the theme “Hope”
Crowe has worked with many well known companies as an illustrator, she has named the most known ones in a biography she has written about herself. Some of the companies include:
Crowe’s work is also quite child friendly with its simplicity of shapes and colour palettes.
I found this Illustrator whilst looking for books in the library which had a story line which linked to my theme.
I decided that a journey would link to my theme of ‘Hope’ as you are hopeful to reach your destination as safe as possible and as quickly as possible… sometimes people may even hope to see something remarkable on the way to their destination.
