My main focus is children’s illustration; this leads my work toward the use of bright colours and a simple approach to shapes, to ensure that the objects I am illustrating are instantly recognised by the youngest audience. I always create a more realistic appearance throughout my illustrations, by adding the finer details and using subtle textures.
The ‘Penguin Number’ book was one of the three books I created for an educational children's book series. The biggest aspect of the books was the puzzle element on the back cover, this connected the four books from each series together to show where the animals live, the penguin book showing Antarctica. I think this gave the final product a more fun appearance, and would definitely engage young children.
