Or, Where's the toilet?
Or, Do you illustrate your own books?
Folk usually ask that last question when I'm doodling in their books, as if to say "Thanks for queueing – now watch me scribble all over your stuff like an overexcited toddler."
I do illustrate a bit and I like to think I can turn my hand to a challenge – anything from sandwich-making to sandwich-eating. But sometimes you just have to hold you hands up and say "I will never be able to do that." That's what I thought when I first saw Pete Williamson's illustrations. He probably won't read this (he doesn't own a computer, lives in a hut made from twigs and hair, and still insists on being paid in eggs) so I can gush all I want. I'm fairly sure there's nothing he can't do with ink.
Pete sent over some of the amazing illustrations from Stitch Head: The Ghost of Grotteskew (via carrier piglet) giving a sneak peek into the story and a first look at some of the new characters. Enjoy.
