I work in two different styles for children's illustration. One is a a more contemporary style drawing from vintage fairy tale illustrations, folk art and hand-made textures, the other is 'playful realism', depicting subjects with more accurate observation, but with a playful edge. I usually determine which one is better to use with input from clients and after getting a feel for what the text needs. I can also create line and dotwork interiors in pen and ink in both styles for chapter heads and as decorative elements.
