This illustration style combines loose, black lines and very watery areas of colour. The images are very simple and the coloured areas spill out of the black outlines in a rather childlike way. Unlike my other book illustrations, they are on a simple white background.
I paint these with both acrylics and watercolour on to hot-pressed, smooth, watercolour paper.
The essence of this style is simplicity, humour and quirkyness, but also sweetness and poignancy.
