Watching the other illustrators at the South Ken festival draw, I noticed how enjoyable crayons are... Kitty Crowther and Marc Boutavant both used them. It was especially charming to see Marc's normally flawlessly rendered creatures drawn in scribbly crayon.
So today I tried drawing my rats in crayon, tos ee if that's the look I'd like for my new book.
The mouth placement is still weird. I'll work it out.
