Illustration Friday: ALPHABET


My first response to this prompt was to draw a quick sketch of King Azaz the Unabridged of Dictionopolis (from The Phantom Tollbooth), but then I remembered another book I'd read recently, Ella Minnow Pea, in which this famous sentence features prominently.

This was good practice drawing animals, which I desperately needed since I am not by any stretch of the imagination an animal person (unlike, it seems, every single person in the children's book community.) I hope they're convincing!

  1. Very cool, I like your technique! I have the opposite problem - I have a harder time drawing people! Your work is beautiful on your other blog!
