My Childrens book

For my silver arts award my final  piece was a children's book I both wrote and illustrated. 

For my Silver Arts Award I look at childrens book illustration. I went to a workshop run by a local artist Del Thorpe and enjoyed using an inkpen to draw with. So I decided to look into the illustrator Quentin Blake as he draws in ink. I studied him for the arts hero section too. I also ran a workshop based on his style as well as two other illustrators. So finally i illustrated the story i had written in a similar style too. Let me know what you think of it.

    Fantastic work Isaac! You're illustrations are lovely with this story and you've clearly developed well. What tips have you learnt from you study of Quentin Blake?

    I particularly like the snail and how the robot appears to be coming in from the edge, not sure how you did that but it is a good effect

    thanks for your comments I really appreciate it the main hing I have learnt is that not all art work has to be neat and perfect.
