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;)
