Another lil’ pat on the back for my Folio Society work. Selected for The Creative Review Illustration Annual 2011. You may have seen the illo’s from the book from earlier blogs so I thought I’d show you some leftovers from the project. It was down to me to choose what stories and chapters to illustrate, so I read it a couple of times and visually annotated the whole original paperback along the way. It’s the only way I can remember important bits I want to pick up on and highlight unfamiliar terms and things I need to research further.  At one point my 2 year old daughter got hold of it and stickered it up which gave me a bit of an idea for the ‘Dog beneath the skin’ chapter. Thanks Orla. x

    congrats! that’s cool. I love the actual copy of the book with all your scribblings, dots and post its. What a fantastic object. I’m still a bit too respectful of books, just the odd folded corner…. coward!
