I’ve been asked to illustrate another resource pack for The English Experience School of English (you can see some of last year’s flashcards here). The company runs summer camps in Europe designed to teach children English language.
It’s good artistic excercise doing a project like this – drawing fast and focused and in a style a little different to the usual keeps you conscious of the drawing process and reminds you not to get too used to doing things a certain way without thinking. The pictures for the resource pack are designed to be coloured in so they’re a lot crisper and less scribbly than I normally tend to draw, with blocks of nice white space to encourage children to get their crayons out.
This year’s pack centres round a fantastical journey through a magic book and features a whole range of new pictures and characters, including the little trio below.
