Here is another of the short films I have to show you. I tried to post it last week, but it didn't work properly - sorry. Happily, now we're in business!
This is sort of a prequel to the other three, as it's me talking about how I came to be a children's book illustrator. I talk about the textile designing and editorial work I did before I discovered children's books and how I got my first picture book commission.
I thought this was to be the last film, but it turns out they have created a fourth. I was such a windbag when they did the filming, I warbled on for hours, so they had tons more material than they had planned on. The next one will be me talking about illustrating in pastels.If you missed the previous films here are links:

Postscript: There are now also several new films on my own YouTube channel including a demonstration of me creating a piece of pastel artwork for my next book Swap!:
...and a detailed look at how I create the line-drawing designs for a picture book, using my latest project Jungle Grumble as an example:
I also use Jungle Grumble to talk you through how I turn photographs of real animals into animal characters suitable for a picture book:
Hope you enjoy them!
