I guess there's nothing better than making pictures for poems. So I was delighted to be asked to illustrate a poem by Spike Milligan... 'A Baby Sardine'.
This second image is the direct photoshop file. It came out well on paper, I think. One of my first children's books was illustrating a book of poems by Eve Merriam... 'A Word or Two With You'. I'll have to blog about that some day.
