Black Beauty is published!


Black Beauty I illustrated fo Ladybird Books is published and I can finally post some pictures. Yay! I am very with pleased with the way it turned - they did a really great job and the book looks lovely. You can get it directly through Ladybird Books website or through here. It is part of a series Ladybird Classics and other books look amazing too.

I posted a few of my favourite illustrations from the book. Most of them are rather sad and dramatic but Black Beauty is not exactly a cheerful story (even when retold for smaller children).

Before I started working on this book I had no idea I could draw a horse and was always too scared to try. It turns out they are not as difficult as people think. Slightly more demanding than mice though;)

Kasiu! I am happy to express my pride for your great success! It is indeed a wonderful piece of work. I agree, these are very good pictures. They show your outstanding talent and skill even (or especially) for such demanding art topics. Well done! :):)
