Tips and Top Hats
After a long drive, a wrong stop and a trek around the impenetrable fortress that is Whangarei Primary (the one on Bank Street), Deltah and her mum Ruth had FINALLY arrived at the author-illustrator lesson.
|Donovan starts a book by just sketching on the floor. If he liked the drawing or the concept and wanted to draw more of that thing, he would write a book about it.
For example, he likes drawing old warplanes, so he drew one flying above the Eiffel tower because he hoped to go there one day. Instead of a human flying the plane he drew a cat because he likes animals. A few years later ‘Flying Furballs’ is a series of his featuring 9 books!
Great story Deltah!
