I was asked to do ‘Little Bo Peep’ in a comic book/pop art style, just for the first two stanzas.
I did it in two sittings; the first to stencil the shapes and key words I wanted, with some boxes as placeholders for the images I wanted. I then took the pens to it, using Berol fine black pens for outline and some coloured Tombow brush pens to bring it to life and the lightest greys to add depth to the card-esque stlyle of the rows.
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.
