So I’ve been asked to do ‘The Ballad of Barry & Freda’ by the wonderful Victoria Wood.
Using the same of comic book/pop art style I used for my ‘Little Bo Peep’ illustration.
Started this yesterday with some pencil placeholders of the requested lyrics and moments from the song, and then filling in some pencil scribbles whilst listening to the song.
I’m not revisiting it with my lovely new Tombow pens.
I’ve been an avid reader and scribbler for years but only recently started thinking about publishing my work.
I’ve always enjoyed writing and have, since 2008, been producing scripts for theatre as my main focus of writing, but always scribbling poems, songs and short stories for fun, and/or catharsis. I’m also a keen sketcher and sketchnoter.
