Mandascat's Illustration's - 'Its gone all quiet!'
August 29, 2016 • Leave a Comment
The cat's and I have completed our Children's Illustration Diploma (with Distinction!!) and we have started a follow on course.
The blue folder dropped through the post, and I and cats read the course information with anticipation.
'We are writing and drawing a Children's Picture book'
After all the stories that have raced through my head, over lots of years... I was a blank! The first task was the words and a 500 word summary.
Well I am not going to tell you the story - just yet, we will let it emerge from the scribbling cat paws.....
It seems most others on the course have taken about 2 years to complete... and I am starting to see why.
First task after words was reference drawings for all the characters..... ARH!
Planning cheetah's, chicken's, rooster, foxes, cat's, giraffe's etc.... that's a lot of reference drawings...!!
Next job is to draw Cheryl Cheetah with various facial expressions.......
But that could be after the album cover I haven't even discussed yet... content for another post....
So if its all quiet on Mandascat - its because I am busy with the cats drawing draft characters.... which I will reveal as they are created.... lets hope its quicker than two years... arh!!

Once a Community Artist, now an Lecturer at CCAD, this blog is about my personal creative journey. Recently married to a guy who loves photography, who gave me an impetus to create alongside him. So out came the pens, paper and the computer. My illustrations, are created via the support of 3 very industrious cats, so any criticism I past that straight to them.... I hope you like and would love any feedback...
