Children’s book illustration workshop at RAMM

Yesterday, yes, I was inspired! Thanks to Exeter Illustrators, Tom McLaughlin, Paul Cherrill and Clare Elsom for their wonderful insight, good humour, and guidance through the world of children’s book illustration at a workshop at the RAMM. They gave me valuable creative and technical advice, whilst we sketched throughout the day. I came away feeling invigorated and inspired by their work and by the other artists around the table and their work. The romantic image of life as a full time professional artist/illustrator has dissipated and I now am more aware of the highly organised commercial machine of the publishing house. It is another business after all, with tight deadlines, etc. Hmmmm. Definitely food for thought, maybe one day….. Mx 😀
