Illustrator Zoo

I'm just back from The Story Museum in Oxford, a fantastic museum devoted entirely to children's literature, where I was for the day. I was situated upstairs in the "Illustrator Zoo," where children and adults alike could come along and chat about my process, books and work in general. 

I spent the day drawing, reading, chatting and collaborating with some lovely, enthusiastic children. Below is Charlotte, who drew the most wonderful cats and a witch next to my Mean Cat. 

And Lucy drew a brilliant Jack Russell (kindred spirits?), a gondola, a rat and a chicken. 

Fun had by all. 

Thanks, Story Museum.
