This tiger is from the book I did with Nicola Davies “A First Book of Animals”.
Children love drawing tigers, butI found it quite challenging. I now have to practise, because my next book will probably be about a tiger.
The idea for the book came to me some time ago. I was unable to finish the story so that the publisher was happy and the book ended up in my drawer.
However, I haven’t stopped thinking about the book. To me it is a sign that I should have another go.
The story in the book is a bit serious for a picture book, so writing it is a bit challenging.
I have put the text to the side for a bit and I’m concentrating on getting the tiger right at the moment.
Here is one of the sketches.
And one better one.
The tiger is in the cage.
Here is a bigger version.
The pictures are just working sketches, but I will get there at the end. It’s early days.
Still, I can’t get rid of the fact, that children paint the best tigers!
