Earlier this autumn I had the pleasure of visiting Belmont Grosvenor School in Harrogate and working with the pupils on creating stories and illustrations. Here’s a lovely article about the day. We had loads of fun making up crazy tales prompted by character and setting cards I brought along. Sometimes the best stories are created from random elements chosen by chance. I set a little competition for the pupils to illustrate a scene from their stories and I was recently sent a selection of the winning artworks. They features bad monkeys, heroic dogs, parrots, treasure, islands and even a hot air balloon. They are all fabulous and I am really pleased to show them to you here! Congratulations to all.
