Illustrating Children’s Books

Black and white ink sketches and line drawings

Having bought brush pens for ink I made a lot of pen drawings and sketches and thought about how best to use the medium. I made patterns, sketches and drawings to use on printed products and filled some with colour.

The drawing style had potential as black and white illustrations for books and my latest ink drawings are illustrating two Children’s books. I’m happy say I have over 40 images in these two books.

The image of a polar bear and a penguin on a mat is from the second book, a tale about going Carol singing, and was published just in time for Christmas.

The book anticipates the approaching season with this November leaf-fall drawing and settles into mid-winter as the story continues.

I’ll take this opportunity to wish you all a happy time with this sketch of three carol singers in the snow.

You might find more of Christina’s illustrated books as the series grows.

The first Polo and Pengy book tells how they met and found a new life in a happy home and the series hopes to relate stories about the pair going places and meeting creatures and people.

These books may appeal to a child or a grown-up and I wonder,
Could these be a suitable gift from you to someone you know ?
